I recently had the necessity to use this useful command to search Linux files changed or created in the last hour (it works on Mac OS too!!)

find . -mmin -60

where

. is the search path and in this case is the folder in which you are (you can get this info by using pwd command)

together with -mmin you can combine or replace with other options like the ones below

OptionMeaningUnitExample
-aminwhen the file was last accessedminutesfind . -amin -20 (file accessed in the last 20 mins)
-atime when the file was accesseddaysfind . -atime -2 (files accessed in the last 2 days)
-cminwhen the file was createdminutesfind . -cmin -3 (files created in the last 3 minutes)
-ctime when the file was created daysfind . -ctime -3 (files created in the last 3 days)
-mmin when the file was modified minutesfind . -mmin -3 (files modified in the last 3 minutes)
-mtimewhen the file was modified portion of a daypossible values are:
– -1: last 24 hours
– -0.5: last 12 hours
– -0.25: last 6 hours

Hope it helps!
