This would be very useful in future if you were unsure of the name and
location of the file sporting its new name. One way to locate those
files is like this:

$ find / -type f -cmin -2880 -a -cmin +1440 -print | less

will find files whose status information was modified between 24 and
48 hours ago. If you renamed a file, that should affect the ctime.
You can choose your numbers appropriately and focus the search by
changing / to something more specific, or even adding -name \*.ext
where ext is the known extension.

That's what I want. Thank you.
