    Okay... I installed Terminal emulator for Android. Can you please tell me the command to know the created date of folder. I tried some the commands in forums. But none of them didn't work.

    Just use a good file explorer, and turn on folder details.

    Agreed, I use ES too, just long press the folder and it will come up with a check box for selecting. Then press the three dot menu at the top right and select "properties"

    If you've modified it, then nothing can show you the created date. It's probably gone.

    In a terminal the 'stat' command won't show you the creation date but it will show you the modified date and the previous modified date. I guess this will only help you if you know those folders you're looking into have only been changed once since they were created.
