Find/Locate size of files

17 May

We were trying to find the size of all Outlook 'pst' files on a machine.

 Can use: 

find /home -name *.pst  -exec du {\} \; | awk '{ s+= $1 } END {print "sum is: ",s}'

 OR:

locate *.pst | sed 's/ /\\ /g' | xargs ls -s | awk '{sum += $1} END { print "sum is: ", sum }'
