How to Determine Size of Individual Public Folders within a Tree?

Last Modified: 2008-02-01

I am trying to to cleanup our huge PF store (80GB). I would like to try and determine why the IS is so large. Is there a way to export the size on each folder\sub-folder within a tree?

I have tried using PFDAVAdmin and ESM without much luck. PFDAVAdmin shows 0 for PR_MESSAGE_SIZE : 0x0E080003, and the ESM will show the size under the "Status" tab, but I have to click on each item individually within the tree.


Remember, I am not asking how to find the IS size.. but the size of the folders within the PF tree.

cool, do I simply copy and paste the code as is into notepad, save as a vbs, and run it via cscript from the public folders server?

ya that should do
