We are getting ready to upgrade the companies PCs, and I'd like to know if XP has a way to find disk usage without installing any extra applications. Also, since we have over 100 PCs, an automated method would be nice too.

Thanks,

The way I do it is open up the management console and then pick connect to computer connect to the users computer in question and am able to go into their Disk Management. This works if your on a domain structure and you have admin rights to the PC's in question.

What exact info are you wanting and what scenario is it being used in?

We are trying to decide what drive size will be necessary, and we are thinking about ways for users to backup their PCs, since so many choose not to use the network to store files (why is still a mystery to us); so we need to know what kinda of times we'd be looking at for different methods.

Thanks

EDIT: Do just the PCs have to be in the domain, or do the users also have to log in? We recently put the domain server in, in preparation for the new PCs, and have yet to put any users into the domain (excepting ourselves for testing).
