to get database file size
$servers = Get-MailboxServer
foreach($s in $servers)
{	$db = Get-MailboxDatabase -Server $s
	foreach ($objItem in $db)
	{	$edbfilepath = $objItem.edbfilepath
		$path = "`\`\" + $s + "`\" + $objItem.EdbFilePath.DriveName.Remove(1).ToString() + "$"+ $objItem.EdbFilePath.PathName.Remove(0,2)
		$dbsize = Get-ChildItem $path
		$dbsize = "{0:N2}" -f ($dbsize.Length/1024MB)
	    $ReturnedObj = New-Object PSObject
	    $ReturnedObj | Add-Member NoteProperty -Name "Server\StorageGroup\Database" -Value $objItem.Identity
	    $ReturnedObj | Add-Member NoteProperty -Name "Size (GB)" -Value $dbsize
