Windows Server 2000 User profile sizes

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

thanks

Tim

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!

timb551,

for a gui tool use Directory Sizes:

timb551,

a more elaborate and free tool is windirstat

The subnet calculator helps you design networks by taking an IP address and network mask and returning information such as network, broadcast address, and host range.

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%\.."
