Trying to find out total of all users Deleted Items folders

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
Is there a powershell script that will get the size of all my users Deleted Items folders? I am not interested in the Recoverable Deleted Items, just the actual Deleted Items folder. Reason I ask is we are having disk space issues and I think most users are just Deleting Items but not empyting their Deleted Items folder. I know I can use managed folders to take care of this but for now, I am just curious as to the grand total of every users Deleted Items folder. I have run Powershell scripts to output mailbox size but I don't know if you can refine it to just get the size of a particular folder. If not, is there a perfmon counter that would have this data.We are running Exchange 2010 SP1 with update rollup 3.
