Good suggestions here:
I personally would use the
-mtime option, but depending on your version of Linux/find, you may be able to use the options listed in the first link...
I usually just use 'ls' from the parent directory of the possible directories the files I want are held
ls -alhR | grep "Feb 22"
where "Feb 22" is the date you're looking for. This is a terrible method due to it showing any files editing on Feb 22, regardless of the year - but usually this isn't an issue for me. If you need on or after X date, go with the other suggestions of using mtime.
