I am looking for space! I would like to search for all large folders and files. I found this answer but so far my searches failed to show some of the large files, including a
.pkg file that was in my home directory (the 'house' icon). I just use "normal" finder, and then with the controls - where I am trying to find a way to say
size > 100MB or something to that effect. But I don't even see size.
I also can not see how to display all folders on my computer where again
folder size > 100MB. Are these possible using the Finder controls?
edit: To address the comments I've added an additional example. It's the selective file type that's bothering me. Here I create some files with python and look with Finder. Finder decides that I should not know about two of the files because the "Kind" is "Document". If I display the folder, they are there, but Finder won't show them if I'm searching.
import numpy as np import matplotlib.pyplot as plt import json y = [3,1,5,2,0] np.save("TestDifferent", y) with open("TestDifferent.json", "w") as outfile: json.dump(y, outfile) with open("TestDifferent.txt", "w") as outfile: outfile.write(str(y)) with open("TestDifferent.weird", "w") as outfile: outfile.write(str(y)) plt.figure() plt.plot(y) plt.savefig("TestDifferent") plt.show()
all files > 100MBin one place, without regard to file type. The
.pkgis just an example of a file that it is leaving out.
