I know how to use the "all my files" thing and sort by size, but it seems that the largest file that appears there is around 1GB. I suspect there is some other way to list all large files (apps, folders whatever). I would like to do that to free some space.

Is there any way to do that?

From Finder:

File > Find > Kind > Other > File Size + is greater than 1GB

enter image description here

Terminal (replace dot with the path you want to search for these big files):

find . -size +1GB -exec rm -rf {} \;

find . -type f -size +1GB -exec rm -rf {} \; # just for files

A great GUI option is called Grand Perspective and can be found here. It also shows a tree map of the folder you point it at, which immediately shows you the largest files under the folder.

It's been around since 2008 and is Mavericks-compatible.

Best of all, it's free.

Try Disk Inventory X:

It will show you a visual view of your hard drive.
