i wanted to list all unused files more than 1 year on my
disk..

i used command:

find -atime +365

works great, but after i noticed that find updated Last
Access Time to TODAY. :((

2nd use of command returned no matches..

unix version of find and also GNU utils version of find
keeps files untouched...

    Why is this a problem? I believe that is exactly what is
    supposed to happen.

    What task are you trying to accomplish?
