Q.  Linux: find all files that were recently changed

A.  Use find, like this:

find . -type f -mtime -1 -ls ^ ^ ^ ^ | | | | | | | Display full info about the file | | | | | Modified date was 1 days ago or less | | | Only files (not folders, symlinks, sockets, etc) | Starting in the current directory
If you want to search the entire computer you'll want to prune off /proc
find / -path /proc -prune -o -type f -mtime -1 -ls
