Have a look at the find "-mtime" option.

It usefull to use on-line find helper

To place your listing of modified files in a file:
Code:
find /your_stuff -mtime 30 -exec ls -ld {} \; > output_file

To see how much disk space the modified files consume:
Code:
find /your_stuff -mtime 30 -exec ls -ld {} \; | awk '{x = x + $5'; print x}' | tail -1

Make sure to replace 30 with the number of days you are searching for. The disk usage will be in bytes.

If you want to track growth you can do du -hs /yourstuff on the directory you are tracking and keeping track of the change in disk usage.
