Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hi Suman,

You sure can you can search by date last modified in all versions of windows XP. Or after you run a specific search (or wildcard *)you can click on the date tab to sort by last modified date.

Either of these two methods will show you what the last files were that were modified on your system.

If that wasn’t your question – please clarify.

If you’re looking for the text/data that was changed…then you can use a diff program (for Windows, I’m not aware of one, but maybe WinDiff; as for Linux, I believe at least almost all distros come with “diff” now.) But, your question is rather vague.

    If you are looking for the specific fields that have been modified most recently, save a "backup" copy of the record that is distinguished from the original (add and "X" to the name") of a file each time a modification is made. Run a field-by-field comparison of the two versions to expose fields in the "backup" which have been changed. For further indentificaiton, stamp a modification date and an operator's ID into the "backup" record.
