there there an app freeware or shareware ( or program already in the OS ) that would list files on a HD by date added?

this would help keep track of HD as it slowly fills up

thanks

Spotlight?
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.

good idea but couldnt get it to work for me

the idea is say you open iTunes, you can see a list of items in say movies, music, by 'date added'

Id like to look at my HD or any of the other three and see a list for items 'date added'

thaniks !

Go to the Finder and hit command-F (this is driven by Spotlight but not its main interface, so fair enough, it wasn't where I said). Depending on how you searched last, this window may look a little different, but usually there is a line for the search text, one for where to search, and then one more line with a popup menu that usually says Kind. If there is no more line, just hit the + button far to the right on the last bar visible above the result. Select Creation Date if you can see it in the menu. If you can't see it, select Other... at the end and you get a window with all possible options. Select Creation Date there. Set options for it - just anything but empty, you can set it to "created before" and tomorrow's date if you like. This will start the search. Now right-click on the header bar just below where you just selected the date, and select Creation Date in that menu to add one more option to sort by. Finally click that header to sort by creation date, and you get a list of everything in your computer by creation date.
