Airdrop logging on a Mac Computer

You can use the mdls -raw command to view the metadata for files on your Mac.

Example: mdls -raw /pathToYourFile

If a file was sent to you via airdrop, that file will have metadata that contains "com.apple.AirDrop". All you need to do to see all files that were sent to your Mac Computer via airdrop is run the mdfind command and search for "com.apple.AirDrop".

Example: mdfind com.apple.AirDrop

You can also use the mdfind command to search in a specific directory for certain file types.

Example:  mdfind -onlyin ~/Downloads/ com.apple.AirDrop | grep .jpg
