How to find large files in Linux
Posted by Mont Rothstein on 18 October 2007 12:01 AM

At the command line as root enter: 


find / -size +102400k 


This will find all files on the entire system that are bigger than 100 MB.




Use this one to see the sizes:



find / -size +103400k | xargs ls -laAh


Use "find ." to look only in the current directory.

find . -size +103400k | xargs ls -laAh
