I want to find file in whole system. My file name just say is “resume.pdf” and I forgot where I saved it. How to search entire Linux hard drive for a file?
Use the find command:
sudo find / -name "resume.pdf" sudo find / -type f -name "resume.pdf" # Find all pdf files sudo find / -type f -iname "*.pdf"
You can use the following commands to find files on whole server file system:
# updatedb $ locate resume.pdf
