i lost a file. BUT, I do remember approximately when it was created.

Is there a command or tool in standard PUPs that I can use to locate all file changes since a given time-stamp? This would include files that are hidden.

Thanks in advance for any ideas that would help.

Thanks @Lobster. Yes, on a traditional PUP this would be used. But, I tried out this GUYDOG couple days ago. Guess what it doesn't have.

Is there command line approach I can use. Hmmm.

Also, GuyDog has SearchMonkey.
But I cannot remember if it is in the menu. It seems that it was not and that was on the todo list for the next release.
