I got it.... if you have some 20 subdirectories under user directory and you know that file1 is created in some of these 20 directories, but you dont know who created... To find this file general methods are...
1 using find command
2 using locate command after updating db
But the simple one is ..... go to the user directory... and type
ls -ltr */file1
this will search all the 20 directories and get the file....
if you have some more subdirectories under 20 directories and the file1 is in these directories..
