will give you basic information like total space, space used etc.
You can then export this information to any number of formats.

you can chkdsk which is a inbult semi graphic tool which is used by almost all the windows based diagnostic softwares.

Warning: I recommend against using any diagnostic utility or other software tool written by one manufacturer on another manufacturer's drives, unless the manufacturer of your drive instructs you to do so. While it is very unlikely that a problem will result--such software usually interrogates the drive to determine its type and will refuse to touch a drive made by another manufacturer--there is always the possibility of problems. It's best to use utilities designed specifically for your particular make and model.

Tip: The operative word when using diagnostic software is "software". Like any software program, diagnostic utilities can occasionally have bugs or problems. There was recently a version of a diagnostic utility that was incorrectly returning error codes on drives that turned out to be perfectly fine. Be sure to double-check any error reports with your drive maker's technical support department before concluding that the drive is bad.

Do you want this for a single computer or a tool that will scan your network and collect the information for all the hosts?

Hello,

One other way is to do it your self. For example using WMI and scripting:

strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
    & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colDisks = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
    ("Select * from Win32_LogicalDisk")
For each objDisk in colDisks
    Wscript.Echo "Compressed: " & vbTab &  objDisk.Compressed      
    Wscript.Echo "Description: " & vbTab &  objDisk.Description      
    Wscript.Echo "DeviceID: " & vbTab &  objDisk.DeviceID      
    Wscript.Echo "DriveType: " & vbTab &  objDisk.DriveType      
    Wscript.Echo "FileSystem: " & vbTab &  objDisk.FileSystem      
    Wscript.Echo "FreeSpace: " & vbTab &  objDisk.FreeSpace      
    Wscript.Echo "MediaType: " & vbTab &  objDisk.MediaType      
    Wscript.Echo "Name: " & vbTab &  objDisk.Name      
    Wscript.Echo "QuotasDisabled: " & vbTab &  objDisk.QuotasDisabled
    Wscript.Echo "QuotasIncomplete: " & vbTab &  objDisk.QuotasIncomplete
    Wscript.Echo "QuotasRebuilding: " & vbTab &  objDisk.QuotasRebuilding
    Wscript.Echo "Size: " & vbTab &  objDisk.Size      
    Wscript.Echo "SupportsDiskQuotas: " & vbTab & _
        objDisk.SupportsDiskQuotas      
    Wscript.Echo "SupportsFileBasedCompression: " & vbTab & _
        objDisk.SupportsFileBasedCompression      
    Wscript.Echo "SystemName: " & vbTab &  objDisk.SystemName      
    Wscript.Echo "VolumeDirty: " & vbTab &  objDisk.VolumeDirty      
    Wscript.Echo "VolumeName: " & vbTab &  objDisk.VolumeName      
    Wscript.Echo "VolumeSerialNumber: " & vbTab &  _
        objDisk.VolumeSerialNumber      
Next

Hope it helps

Hi so far no one has mentioned my favourite so here it is.
JDiskReport is a disk analysis utility, that allows you to view disk space usage with the help of graphical, interactive pie charts.
 It allows you to quickly find the largest, oldest or newest files and gather statistics about file sizes and types for each drive.
You can choose between different graphical charts or text reports.
