How can I find the largest files on my new Windows Vista Business machine

I am a confessed XP Pro lover. For the life of me I just get lost in Vista. It is like building cars for 100 years the same basic way then suddenly someone decides to mount the steering wheel on the ceiling of the car rather than the dash board.

Anyway I have apparently some large files sitting out on my PC and I just wanted to check the videos because I make training videos and record TIVO to my PC but for some unexplained reason I have had trouble with network permissions and saving things consistently so I thought i would ask help  on searching. I used to like XP where you could just pic pull all files of size ? or all video files. Is this still possible if so how please.

See this page for some advanced search techniques:

The size and comparison operators (<, >, etc.) will allow you to search by file size.  The kind:videos will search for those files.

You can you treesize pro, this will scan your entire computer and shows you in list of largest to lowest in graph.

I use 'top100files.exe' I've found it to be faster than treesize pro, but as the name suggests you only get 100 results... :S

Copy and then remove the spaces to get the file - I'm new so don't know the policy on direct links to executable files.

ruavol2, any feedback?
