Power Surge and losing files


I have a problem with files getting lost while transferring and getting a power surge the day before. What is happening is I have to transfer files from the day before to create an "End of Day." I use the Julian Date to refer to the previous date say for 10/7/07 I would use 07280 where 07 is the year and 280 is the Julian date. So when the server is transferring files at night and I get a power surge, the files are not there the next day. I need to create a script something like:

find eal*.n where n=date ...

Something like that, please help ???

you probably looking for '-mtime' option. But in any case google on 'linux find command tutorial' and it gives you a lot of examples how to use 'find' in very advanced fashion.
