Server Cleanup

I am consulting with a company that has grown 1000% in three
years.  Their server environment is in total disarray.  Especially nasty is
their use of SQL Server machines as file servers.  One mission critical SQL
Server box has 65Gig of stuff in shares.  I need to clean this up.  Obviously.

I figure that someone here has seen things like this before and may be able
to answer this question: are there any tools "out there" that one can use to
get a good picture of what is on a disk?  I cannot just move that 65Gig
willy-nilly, though I figure that 75% is dormant, untouched in a year or
more.

I need a tool that will scan the [logical] drive, report to me all folders,
their size, and the date of the most recent update or access of any file in
the folder.  Recursing must be supported.  

I have searched and have been amazed to find no such tool.

Anyone know of one?  There's gotta be one.  Doesn't there?

Regards,

John
