Drive Storage Statistics

I need to find a Windows application that will report all the logical drive (used and free drive space information) for our all servers in our domain (only one).  Anyone know of a nice cheap GUI app that will do this for me?

    Problem is Treesize cannot include data for which it does not have access to.  If the permissions don't permit you to view the files, they won't be counted.  

    Don't know why you want GUI - generally, I find it easier to dump the data to a text file and import it into Excel.

    I recommend using diruse - it's a microsoft command line tool that includes everything on the disk, not just what it has permissions to.  reference and download from:

    To save the data in a file, simply redirect it's output.

    For example, diruse c:\ /* /, /m > C-Drive-Usage.txt

    Why not just run Performance Monitor on the server?  It's in Control Panel, in Administrative Tools.  Choose the Performance Object "Logical Disk".
