Search by size?

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Do you know any part of the file name?
  4. no. i wanted just size; I found these and they seem pretty good for what I wanted. Worth looking at and free.
  5. I would suggest WinDirStat. Helped me save some gb's on my HD.
  6. Ah, I see. I thought you were searching for a specific file.

    Jdisk is a similar type software. We occasionally use it at work on our servers.
