Well, even if you search on man pages of find, you will not find the creation time. So you better search in the forum for much better answer.Smilie

Code:
find . -type f -mtime -30 -print

or
Code:
find . -type f -mtime -30 -ls

print just displays files, ls shows dates and times etc

to answer the original question, file creation time is not stored, and do read this if you haven't yet
