Hi list,

I have to throw some bites away, but when i look, i cannot find where
all space went..
How can i see which files absorb all the space?
If i throw something away with shift-del, does it realy dissappear from
the disk of does it remain in some obscure unseen recycle bin?
If there exists a recycle bin, where does it linger? How do i call upon
it, to see if there is something in it?

tia,

Rob.
Here are a couple of links that show how a script can search for files of a
certain size

Hope they help you.
