    -ctime n True if the file's status was changed n days ago.

    -mtime n True if the file's data was modified n days ago.

    It is a good question. You can go to unix and type
    man find , it will give detail.
    Based on what I find, ctime means since last time the file status was changed by such as chmod,chown,etc.
    mtime means since the last time the data of the file was changed. Honestly, I myself not too clear about the differences betwen those two. I hope some unix gurus will help.
