Finding files that have been modified within X days
If you need to find files that have been modified within a certain number of days (eg: files newer than X days), you can use the find command. In this example, we'll list all files under /home/admin which have been modified within the last 2 days:
find -mtime -2
This might be useful if you're looking for any recent changes in the account.
Along the same times, you can list files which are older than a certain time by using + instead of - on the number. For example, any files older than a year can be listed with
find -mtime +356
