I need to recursively list all files in a directory that were modified after a certain date. Is this possible?

touch -t YYMMDDhhmm.SS /tmp/timestamp
find directory -type f -newer /tmp/timestamp
rm /tmp/timestamp

You can use find...

touch –date "2012-11-07" /tmp/find_after
find / -newer /tmp/find_after
rm /tmp/find_after

    works but option should be --date – Max Oct 18 '19 at 16:30

Probably you are looking for this:

find . -type f -mtime 1

this above command will show you files modified 1 day ago from the current directory recursively.
