Hey guys., I want to identify what I was doing on a specific data at a specific time about 1 week ago, using Console. Is it possible to go back this far in Console and if so how can I skip to a specific date without having to scroll back through all the logs manually.

Also, if I am trying to find what I was doing when I "Lost+found" folder was created (probably due to a canceled copy of files) is it possible to see not only the "Copy" action in the logs but also what the name of the files was that was being copies?

One more thing, when "lost+found" files are created during a copy does it necessarily mean that those files never ended up being copied across?


JoshJ actually did more than just cancel a copy of files, see this thread for more details on what happened. I suspect what he's trying to get to is to identify the L+F files without having to inspect each one.
