Mac OS X has a number of commands that will help you find things. There’s find, grep and way more. But the easiest of them all to use is locate. To run locate simply type the word locate from within terminal followed by the case sensitive string of what you are looking for. For example, if you want to find all files with the word Krypted in the name use the following command:
Keep in mind when using the locate command that it will also find files that have the name in the path, so if I have a folder called Krypted, every single file in that folder will appear.
