Find all files starting in the home directory that have not been accessed in the last 30 days

Note that if you run this command a second time there will be no files found because the find command accesses each file in the home directory when it runs.
find ~ -atime +30 -print

Find files edited in last day, recursively

find . -name '*.*' -mtime -1 -print
