Windows 7: Sort and Move Files by Size

Sort and Move Files by Size

What I want to do is go through about 2.5 TB of video files and eliminate all files (within folders) that are not video files. That means of course that I want to be able to sort, and move to a separate hdd, all files that are below a certain size, i.e. too small to be a video file.

Now I do have Belvedere and DigitalJanitor, but have never used them. Is there a better way?

Note: I have all these files organized by Folders and do not want to destroy that organization. So I need, as I do frequently with Easeus Duplicate File Finder and Empty Folder Nuker, go through and cut out the files that are below a certain size and then move those files to a separate hdd.

sort by size within folders
Hi Forum! I've been on Windows 7 for a week. One difference I've noticed between 7 and Vista is I can't see any way to sort files in a folder (say, video, jpegs, or documents) by size. They are all automatically sorted by name. Is there a way to do this I just haven't found yet? Thanks, ...
