Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

fdupes can return identical images and text files which are usually tiny in size and I have no problem having them duplicated. I'm more concerned with large files. So is there a way to find duplicate files with a specific size or greater ?

Other tools suggestions are welcome but a programmatic approach is more welcome. I have a programming background but I'm new to Linux and I'd like to learn more.
