There is no easy way to find large files on a system. The attached file contains a command called lsbig, which will do just that. It also prints out stars and the length of the stars show the usage of each folder / file from smallest to largest on the box.
lsbig (611 bytes, 255 hits)
Usage is very simple. Put the file in your path and make it executable. It accepts two parameters:
lsbig [dir [size] ]
dir Directory or file to work on size Minimum size of files to report. Suffixes are allowed (k for K, m for meg, g for gig), both lower and upper case are allowed
So for example:
lsbig will do the current directory and report all files
lsbig / will do the entire system and report all files
lsbig / 50g will do the entire system and report all files greater than 50 gig in size.
