Find large files and locate disk usage

Head Surfer
October 9th, 2008

If you ever run low on disk space the first thing you should do is consider deleting old log files. If that’s not enough you should search for LARGE files on the server. Here’s a way to locate all files on the server that have a file size greater than 100MB.

find /* -type f -size +100000k

Of course you can change the 100000k to reflect whatever file size you’re searching for.
500MB would be 500000k
