Find large files by using the OSX commandline

To quickly find large files to delete if you have filled your startup disk, enter this command on the OSX terminal:

sudo find / -size +500000 -print

This will find and print out file paths to files over 500MB. You can then go through them and delete them individually by typing rm “<file path>”, although there is no undelete so make sure you know you won’t miss them.
