Here’s a quick tip – say you want to find all the files under a particular folder structure which have changed recently (or since a specific date).

Did you know that xcopy can help with this?

For a specific folder and everything underneath:

Xcopy c:\<folder> /D:M-D-Y /L /S

So for example – anything that’s changed since yesterday (today being 8th June 2010) under the C:\Windows folder:

Xcopy c:\windows /D:06-07-10 /L /S

(Note this will only list the files – not copy them)
