  • Find files of a specific size range.

    I need to find all files that are > 4.10 and < 4.20 GB. The reason is that our Novell server crashed 10 months ago and corrupted certain files but we figured that we can spot them by searching for all files of this specific size (theory tested and works!).

    What can I use to find these files?

    Re: Find files of a specific size range.

    Start - Search - For Files Or Folders
    Click What size Is it?
    Sellect Specify a Size
    Sellect At least and fill in 4100 (As it is KB).

    It will now bring up all files that are atleast 4,1M MB of size.

    Another Option is Find command but it is limmited in Windows.
    I do not believe the /Size switch is available.

      Thanks KillerBe, but like I said:

        You can just organise the search results by size after it is run?

          and to make doubly sure have the lower search set to 4000 as windows displays funny file sizes whetever it pleases(ok not 100% true but often it feels like it)

            My suggestion will be to, type 200000 in the size text box.

              This has no bearing on the original question and makes no sense.

              The OP wants to find files between 4.1 and 4.2 GB (c. 4 000 000 Kb)
              You suggest finding files of a totally different size (without specifying units)

              IMHO, the suggested specifying files over a certain size, then sorting the output by size is a good way to go.
