What you describe is exactly what TreeSize does. The last change date of a folder that Treesize shows is the "latest" last change date of all files in the whole subtree. In contrast to this, the Windows Explorer only takes direct sub-files into account when calculating the last change date of a folder. so the date shown in Treesize may differ from the date shown in the Windows Explorer, but is more accurate.

TreeSize is not available for non-Windows systems, but can scan such system through SSH or by using a Samba server.

There are no explicit limitations in what TreeSize is able to scan. The more folders and files the file system tree you want to scan has, the more free memory will be necessary to store the queried data. You can reduce the memory consumption by turning off some statistics.

You can use the right click menu and select "Show files of this date interval" to open the file search and automatically list allf files of the selected interval.
