Search Android files by date from Windows

MobileFileSearch is a freeware tool for Windows 10/8/7/Vista that allows you to easily search files and folders inside your Android device plugged to USB port on your computer. MobileFileSearch is just a standalone .exe file that you can put in any folder you want and run it without need of any installation process.

In order to search Android files by date with MobileFileSearch, you have to plug your Android device to a USB port on your computer.
After plugging the device to the USB port, you may need to select 'File Transfer' USB connection in your Android Device, like in the following screenshot:

Assuming that Windows operating system identifies your Android device correctly, you should see the device in Windows Explorer:

Assuming that your Android device is connected properly to your computer, follow the instructions below to search Android files by date:

  1. Run MobileFileSearch.exe
  2. In the 'Search Options' window - choose the 'Specified time range' option in the 'Created Time' or 'Modified Time' combo-box (Depending on which type of file date you want to search). You also have 2 types of time range options - GMT or Local Time. After selecting the combo-box option, choose the date/time range to search the files. In the example below, I chose to search the files modified between the following date range: 01/11/2019 10:00:00 - 12/11/2019 20:00:00

  5. You can now select one or more files (You can press Ctrl+A to select all files), and then copy them to a folder on your system (Choose the 'Copy Selected Files To' menu item or press F8) or delete them (File -> Delete Selected Files or press Ctrl+Delete). You can also export the files list into comma-delimited/tab-delimited/XML/HTML/JSON file by using the 'Export Selected Items' option.

MobileFileSearch also allows you to search Android files by date from command-line and then export the search result to a file. For example, the following command searches files created between 20/10/2019 00:00:00 and 30/10/2019 00:00:00 and then exports the search result to comma-delimited file:
MobileFileSearch .exe /CreatedTime.FindMode 1 /CreatedTime.From "20-10-2019 00:00:00" /CreatedTime.To "30-10-2019 00:00:00" /Wildcard "*" /sort "Created Time" /scomma "c:\files\android-search-by-date.csv"
