I have a file with size 6284,

# ll 1.jpg
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 6284 Jan 10 19:02 1.jpg

When I do find . -size 6284 or find . -size 6284b, it shows nothing. Did I miss something?


According to man find, using the b suffix to a -size constraint imposes units of 512-byte blocks.

To use units of byte, use the suffix c:

# find . -size 6284c
