Search For All Files Created or Modified After A Time & Date ?


Would anyone please be able to advise me how to use Windows 7 search to find all files on a PC that were created or modified after a selected time and date?

I can do this easily in XP but just cannot get this work in Windows 7.

If you have explorer.exe open, for eg. Computer. In the search bar at the top right of the window when you click on that A pop down will show and you can add "Date Modified + Size" filter.

W7, W8.1

W7 search interface is not to everyone's liking (whatever some here may believe). There are other options as well. Use w7 search or choose whatever other program that suits you best, and gives the best results in your line of work.

Many here have recommended Agent Ransack/FileLocator Lite - Screenshots which IMO have a 1st class UI, and never fails in any search operation (thanks for the recommendations!). Good luck.

file date-created VS date-modified where modified < created
All -- Please help with this question about file date-created VS date-modified in Windows 7. Suppose a file is created at time1. How come Windows7 reports "date created" as "time1" and "date modified" as "time2" where "time2" is a time earlier than time1? See the attached file,...

Can I search for Date Modified between two specific dates?
The thread title says it all. I want to specify specific start and stop dates as a filter, not the general "last month" or "last year" type offered. Any help? EDITED: Ignore this request (I don't know how to delete it.) Reason: Modifying the filename doesn't change the Date Modified...
