Maybe 'find'. You can give it time arguments, so you can find files
created/modified today, yesterday, or between two given dates (I think?). If
you know where in the tree it is, then it will take less time, but if you
don't know, well, 'find / ' is always an option.

This relies on the file having a useful timestamp (not a 10 years old file
transfered with 'scp -p', for instance).
