Error Find out the maximum growing file in a mount

I need to find the file that is growing in the mount. Say yesterday the utilised space was 95% but today that is 96%. How do i find the file that is growing in size. Have checked the same with du/df options but was not able to find much.

Please suggest the best possible option.

Code:
du -h /home/users/ | sort -nr

will give you the file usage sorted, you just have to select the folder to query.

Under HP-UX-11.23:
Code:
du -sk /mnt/* | sort -nr

I wouldn't use -h in this case. The units will change depending on the size, so a 20MB file will be listed as being bigger than a 2GB one.
