How to list the newest files in a folder, including all sub folders - Noob vs. Pro
AI Noob Answer:
"you can use "find" on Linux and MacOS:
find /path/to/directory -type f -printf '%T+ %p\n' | sort | tail -n 10... it works, but too complicated.
The "-type f" option tells find to search only for files, not dirs. The "-printf '%T+ %p\n'" option tells ... blabla ...
On Windows, you can use "forfiles":
forfiles /S /M *.* /C "cmd /c echo @fdate @file" /D +0 /O:D... non functional garbage, producing error: invalid option '/O:D'
Is that helpful? Not really.
It's as stupid as: "Build a robot and train his AI to type DIR /OD for every folder and subfolder, rememember the newest files therein, then think of the overall newest files and write that into a file. Should only take five years."
Forget the above junk, download the free open source SFK for any system and type:
sfk late mydir
Done. Example output:
2023-01-24 18:07:14 mydir\foo.txt
2023-01-24 18:07:18 mydir\bar.txt
2023-01-24 18:13:53 mydir\hoo.txt
sfk lateis an alias for
sfk list -late.
