Find large files in CentOS, ubuntu and MacOS

Sometimes, maybe everybody needs to check large files in the system. There some useful commands which I’m using often.

Here is the first pattern:

find /home/ercan/ -type f -size +100000k -exec ls -lh {} \; | awk '{ print $9 ": " $5 }'

If file size more than 250 MB in the system:

sudo find /home/ercan/ -type f -size +250000k -exec ls -lh {} \; | awk '{ print $9 ": " $5 }'

Here is the results:

/home/ercan/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/Counter-Strike: 631M
/home/ercan/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/Counter-Strike: 248M
/home/ercan/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/Counter-Strike: 251M
/home/ercan/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/Counter-Strike: 464M
/home/ercan/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/Counter-Strike: 306M
/home/ercan/Downloads/CentOS-7-x86_64-Minimal-2003.iso: 1.1G
/home/ercan/VirtualBox: 13G
