Follow-up Comment #1, bug #14991 (project findutils):

The documentation of the current release says this:

 -atime n   File was last accessed n*24 hours ago.  When  find
  figures  out how  many  24-hour  periods  ago the file was last 
  accessed, any fractional part is ignored, so to match -atime
  +1, a file has to have been accessed at least two days ago.

(and the docs for mtime contain apointer to this paragraph)


-mtime +1 means "The number days since the file was modified is greater than

address@hidden:/tmp/foo$ for i in `seq 23 49` ; do touch -d "$i hours ago"
$i ; done
address@hidden:/tmp/foo$ find -mtime +1
address@hidden:/tmp/foo$ find --version
GNU find Version 4.2.25
