Locate files of another user


Alright, more lab issues.

I am logged in as root, and am given the task of locating a certain set of files that belong to another user. I've tried the find command, but to no avail. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

Are you sure you completely checked the find command?

https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q...+user+in+linux

Code:
find / -user [username]
Either use -name option or pipe through grep to filter.

It happens to all of us.

Could you mark this as solved?
