Ubuntu - Find Large Files

Free Resource
I use this code on my Ubuntu dapper and hardy servers to track down large files that are using disk space.  This script requires modification to work on some other operating systems such as CentOS.  The awk arguments may need changing.

   / -type f -size +
    k -exec ls -lh {} \; | awk '{ print $8 ": " $5 }'
