Hi All

I have several computers on a network. Is there a software package available that will return the size of a specifc folder on their computer. In particular I am looking to determine the size of each users My documents folder.

These are XP machines and administered via active directory.

Well If these profiles/computers are managed by Active Directory then the user accounts/profiles will also be managed by Active Directory and the Roaming User Profile will have to be located on the domain controller or server and you will then have the access to view the properties of the user profile home directory and there you will be able to see the size of the users account/My documents folder.

How about the command "dir /s"?
Remotely (with pstools) it could be:
psexec \\computername dir "c:\Documents and Settings\username" /s (or something similar)
PSTools Download page

Yes this is verbose, but it can easily be piped into a file and parsed.
