Tool to create a directory report

I have been trying to create a comprehensive report of drives attached to a file server. I need a report to give me: folder and file sizes within the drive, the last date a file(s) was access, the last date the file was modify, the type of files with the folders. Any ideas how to get this information? Thanks in advance for your help.

It seats on Windows 2008 R2

My favourite tool for this is Treesize.
http://www.jam-software.com/freeware/index.shtml

It scans individual drives, visual representation in terms of graphs, is sortable in terms of age for last updated and last user, list owners and can export all information to friendly formats like .csv, xls, html.

I have used tree size; it gives me a report for the directory I scan but if I go one level deeper, the choice to get a report disappear.
To get a report to the directory mentioned above ( one level deeper) I have to run a scan on that directory in particular to get the report
I was looking for a tool that I can run a report on a drive and subsequently run a report  to any other directory under that drive

Try Diruse but not sure if it can be run on the 2008 R2.I have used in 2003, its a good tool for you requirement.

Also try Disk usage.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

i agree with dvt_localboy, treesize but id use the pro version (unc path support and lots more)
use the trial to get a look and feel..

I found another tool on the Microsoft website.
It will give you the folder sizes but not the file information.
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896651.aspx

Use the command:
du -c -v [folder] >dirs.csv

You can also use the DOS command "dir", to  get some meaningful info from the files.
dir [folder] /s /ta >dirs.txt

switches:
/s - recurse directories
/ta - display and sort by last accessed date
