Check Remote Folder Size from CMD line
Posted on 2006-10-31
I simply want to check the folder size of a particular directory on a remote server i.e \\server1\dept
I am not concerned about the number of files or their size, just the size of the folder
I am looking for a way to do this from the cmd line since i need to check the sizes of 2 directories on about 70 servers
I have looked at the dir cmd switches but couldn't get it to show me the size of the directory
There are various utilities that can show me this info from within windows but it takes far too long.
I also looked at the DIRUSE reskit utility but it also took too long to return results.
Can someone help me out here
