Hi,

Is it possible to calculate total file size of a folder in the file system using SQL query?

I have a table that contain folder path in one of the column.

SELECT FolderPath FROM MyData

This will give result like:

\\server_A\something\folder1\
\\server_B\something\folder1\
\\server_C\something\folder3\
\\server_C\something\folder4\

I need to count the file size in each Folder Path.

Is this possible?

System is Windows 2003 server with MS SQL 2005.

Thanks.
