Determining users' disk quota usage

My question relates to how much of a user's disk quota has been used and the way to determine it at any time.
Given the following environment;
- Users' created files are stored on a share in Server-1
- Users' roaming Profiles and My Documents are stored on shares in Server-2 (in one disk volume)

How do I go about ascertaining storage space used by any given user on each of the volumes in Server-1 and Server-2?

Any tips, suggestions or assistance rendered would be very much appreciated. Thanks

Hey garychu

We also use roaming data and quota's at our site.
There Application Data and My Documents roam...
What we have chosen is 1,5 Gig for people with .pst...
And 1 Gig for people with Exchange...

Application Data is usaully between 3MB to 10MB...
My Documents are quite small, but .pst and .pst archive do take up alot of space, user have 500MB for docs
With Exchange we limit the mailbox sizes, so user has 500MB for docs etc

500MB is enough and not to hard to backup on fibre LAN. Users in Finance and Marketing usually use the most space regarding my docs

cheers

Thank you everyone.
Will not try to do it by scripting at this stage, but merits looking into.

With your help, I have been able to solve my immediate problem.
However, it has given rise to a new issue, which I will the subject of another question.

Thanks again, and very much appreciated.
