Hi All,

It would be fantastic if CS Explorer is able to show a list of the biggest files on a server, largest first.

I've actually had a fascination with this question from a long time ago, including this forum post from 10 years ago where chirpy (Jonathan Michaelson) of configserver same was in on the discussion:

https://forums.cpanel.net/threads/how-t ... nux.56898/

and this one from 2004: https://www.sitepoint.com/community/t/l ... ize/1754/2

I try to stay away from the CLI if possible (I've got more tech persons to do that for me).... but I also like to have access to certain functions via a web interface. And listing the biggest files on a server often reveals that we've got some huge old tar.gz files or similar on the server that can be deleted, which helps to keep server costs down because we don't therefore have to add more disk space.

So it seems to me that CS Explorer could do this without much tweaking?

Fingers crossed...

Perhaps I can pay (make a donation) to get this feature added?

I could not agree more with this; much needed and I too would be willing to donate for it!

I emailed ConfigServer Services about this, offering to pay, and their answer back in Feb 2016 was:

"I'm sorry, but we do not do custom scripting and at this time we do not have plans to add any additional features to cse."

:-(
