How to Find Large Files in Ubuntu Linux

If you want to find files above a certain size, or find files between certain sizes, then you may use the +size x and -size x switches to the find command.

For example:

find /etc -size +100k -size -150k

This command will find all files inside the /etc directory that are between 100k and 150k in size.
