finding all large files

Posted: 06-02-2006, 05:46 AM
Is there an easy way (like in XP) to find all files over a certain size?
I've spent an hour trying to do it and no luck.
This should be much more intuitive and easy.
Seems like we're regressing.

Start Pearl > Search > Click on the down arrow underneath Back button >
click "Title" then select "Size" > select the appropriate option under the
"equals" menu" > then select the option from the "Zero" menu option giving
you quite definitive amounds of size )

Excellent - thank you!
This is certainly not intuitive as XP. Have a feeling general users will be
quite frustrated if this is any indication.
