Find Files by Size on Linux

To find files based on the file size, pass the -size parameter along with the size criteria. 

You can use the following suffixes to specify the file size:

  • b: 512-byte blocks (default)
  • c: bytes
  • w: two-byte words
  • k: Kilobytes
  • M: Megabytes
  • G: Gigabytes
The following command will find all files of exactly 88 bytes inside the / directory:

find / -type f -size 88c

Find files larger than 88M:
find / -type f -size +88M

Find files smaller than 88G
find / -type f -size -88G
