Your question is not so clear, but I will assume that you want to find a file that is older than one month.


find /path -ctime +30 -a -ctime -360

or you may use the -mtime in place of -ctime

The above command will search for files that were changed more than a month ago and less a year a go.

you may add the -name "*filename*" if  you are looking for a particular file name
/path is the dir under which to search
