Search by size? Tags: DOS Windows XP Last response: May 2, 2010 5:36 PM in Windows XP Share briab guy May 1, 2010 11:55:02 PM How would I search for files/folders in XP by only the size? Say i want to find all files that are one GIG or more? I vagly remember some DOS, *.* etc.. if dir *txt*.* finds all txt files how would I do size? Or better yet is there a way to do the search in the search window? I didn't see it. Thanks More about : search size aford10 May 2, 2010 6:12:34 AM If you know the extension, just use the search function with the extension that you're looking for. Then arrange the results by file size. briab guy May 2, 2010 12:57:33 PM Naw, that will not work. I suppose i could go through all the most common extensions. exe bat etc... on second thought, no. I'm supprised that there isn't a way to do it. I don't even remember if theres a way to do it in DOS. Thanks for the try.
