need a hierarchical date last mod on Windows
Posted on 2013-10-10
I have a directory tree that goes 5-6 levels deep with folders containing a couple of hundred files each. In short, below the top level folder I may have 100,000 files.
This is Windows 2003.
I need to find the age of the youngest file under this hierarchy. In other words the date of the most recent file.
How can I do this and get a simple answer that shows on the same screen as the command window where I issue the command? In other words, I don't want to actually get the date on all these and throw them into Excel and sort.
These machines don't have perl or anything non-Windows.
