    My iMac HDD is nearly full
    Can't move 4gb+ files to my ext HDD, annoying

    Can't seem to work out where all the large video and audio files reside on my hard disc

    Is there an explorer style app which shows where all my files reside, such as video, audio etc by size, so I can target those files and move them to an external HDD so I can free up space?

    What a wonderful app if so, because I have filled this thing up (500GB) and I have no idea where, and I am relatively technical as well...

    If you're external hard drive is formatted as FAT32, no single file can be larger that 4GB. The finder will halt the copy process.

    Yes I know, I overcame that with the NTFS-3G program, which worked a treat when moving large files to a 16gB external USB drive last month
