find command is a very powerful command which can do good work when its needed to find files with conditions. Find command is useful when finding files with complex requirement such as size, permissions etc. Suppose we want to find a file which is a regular file and its size is more than 1GB and its accessed more than 90 days back and its owner is none and then delete it.
