How to get the latest file in a folder using python
i need to get the latest file of a folder using python. While using the code:
max(files, key = os.path.getctime)
I am getting the below error:
FileNotFoundError: [WinError 2] The system cannot find the file specified: 'a'
Whatever is assigned to the
files variable is incorrect. Use the following code.
import glob import os list_of_files = glob.glob('/path/to/folder/*') # * means all if need specific format then *.csv latest_file = max(list_of_files, key=os.path.getctime) print latest_file
