Find Large Files in Linux

This doesn’t work perfectly, but I often use it to start tracking down disk hogs:

To return the 10 largest items in a given directory:

du -cksh * |sort -rn |head -11

Some times it’s helpful to view all

du -cksh * |sort -rn

If someone has a better approach, please comment.
