Small utility to check a list of paths and return the last time they were modified. Can also pass an individual path as an argument from the command line.

I built this as I need to check the last time a big number of backup files were created/modified. It comes useful when you need to check if the daily backups of 100s of servers have been completed.


  1. Compare file size on disk with expected file size
  2. Compare modify date with current date and report out of date files
    • i.e. in the case of checking backups, this can indicate which backups have failed or haven't finished yet
You can’t perform that action at this time.
