Data Find an imported folder?


I recieved a written code which imports an unknown folder.

How can I search the unix file system for this certain folder.

I tried using the 'find' command, but it only works on files, not on folders

What's the syntax of the find command you are using & what version of unix are you on? My find command finds folders ok.

Try using "find /wherever -type d -other_options"
See your man page on find for a better description.
