Finding large files

Yet another thing I keep forgetting:

find . -size +10000k

Finds files over roughly 10Mb

find . -size +10M

or if you want to get fancy...

find . -size +10M -printf "%h/%-40f %k Kb\n"

Yes, I'm not sure what I was thinking by using 'k' instead of 'm'.

I like the formatted output version too.
