Disk Space Usage Reports

Hi, We are running a Win 2000 network.  I am a network admin.  My boss has asked me to start generating monthly reports on the following items:

Disk space usage (how much is available, who is using, how much will we have next month based on growth over the last few months)

Who is logging onto the network and when

Who is triing to access directories they should not be

Do we have duplicate files on the network

I know one reporting package won't do it all, but does anyone have any ideas.  Most important rigth now is the disk space usage reports.  Any insight would be appreciated

With WIN2k you can use the access logs under the event viewer for the server to verify successfull/failed login attempts. Disk Usage could be tracked by running a Perfmon Trace at the desired intervals. There also might be some third party software out there that will track that for you also. Another route would be to create a spreadsheet and track them manually by checking them once a month. With the spreadsheet you can create reports and monitor the trends in a much easier fashion than any other method that I have seen. You could create a batch file to search for duplicate files...
