Windows Server 2008 R2 Data volume information

I have a general question, in regards to checking the sizes of the drive volume (used space and free space) for 32 SQL servers.  At the present time I have to map or RDP to each server and I am looking for a way to streamline this process.  Is there a free tool or powershell example that I can use to scan all the drive volumes to provide me the used space and free space of each drive volume?

I like the Powershell option and I already have it working to display the drive information. However when I tried to export the information into a CSV file it is creating the file but it is not exporting the data into the file.

This is what I have so far any ideas?

 Get-WMIObject Win32_LogicalDisk -filter ‘DriveType=3’ -computer (Get-Content c:\scripts\computers.txt) | Select SystemName,DeviceID,VolumeName,@{Name=’Size(GB)’;Expression={‘{0:N1}’ -f($_.size/1gb)}},@{Name=’Free Space(GB)’;Expression={‘{0:N1}’ -f($_.freespace/1gb)}},@{Name=’Free Space(%)’;Expression={‘{0:N1}’ -f(100 * $_.freespace/1gb) / ($_.size/1gb)}} | Out-GridView -Title ‘Drive Space’ | out-file –filepath c:\scripts\drivesizes.csv -append

I am sorry that I am replying so late, I got engaged in other fires that needed my attention.

I tried to run the last script as posted but it did not work, I am getting the following error message.  

Export-Csv : A parameter cannot be found that matches parameter name 'Append'.
At line:3 char:23
