I need a script that will read computer name and folder location from an excel spreadsheet and then go out and find the folder size of that specified folder and then write the computer name/folder name/ and folder size to a txt file or something.

What I need to do is scan some computers in my office to get an idea of how much disk space we need to start backing up our desktops/laptops to a NAS. So I need to look at user profile documents folders and email pst folders. And some machines are XP Pro and other are Window 7.

I am hoping that someone has had this same challenge before and can help with what they did to get this information.

I really appreciate the any help I can get with this.
