Is there anyway of seeing how big user roaming profiles are using some sort of app?

thanks

Hi timb551,

you can use Disk Usage from sysinternals

http://www.sysinternals.com/utilities/du.html

this is a command-line utility, I prefer it for its simplicity

Hope this helps!

I'd be careful - most tools have permissions issues where if they don't have permission to access the file, they don't include it's size in their report.  I have tested a couple of such tools, but not the sysinternals tool (and he usually does things quite well), but the one tool I've found to work great is by Microsoft - DIRUSE
http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/techinfo/reskit/tools/existing/diruse-o.asp
(works fine with NT4,2000,XP,2003)

To get a listing of profiles on a machine, locate the executable on a command prompt and run:
DIRUSE /, /* /M "%allusersprofile%\.."
