Find recently modified, created or accessed files - Linux

In servers, often I have to find out the recently modified or created files. It is also too helpful to find out source of an attack or infection.

In such situation, we can use find tool.

List files modified in last 2 hour

find /directory-to-search -type f -mmin -120

List files created in last 2 hours

find /directory-to-search -type f -cmin -120

List files accessed in last 2 hours

find /directory-to-search -type f -amin -120

List files modified in last 1 day

find /directory-to-search -type f -mtime -1

List files created in last 1 day

find /directory-to-search -type f -ctime -1

List files accessed in last 1 day

find /directory-to-search -type f -atime -1
