Can anyone recommend a Folder Size utility to use on Server 2008R2.  I need to find what data folders are using up excess space.  Something that could export results into a report would be a plus.

The best tool for this in my opinion is Tree Size Pro (Jam Software). Great for Servers and folder size analysis and very inexpensive. You can download and run trial version.

Have you look at the reports and the capabilities of the File Server Resource Monitor built in to Windows Server.

You should also try WinDirStat  an excellent piece of which can be run from a USB stick if you need to.  It presents a graphical representation of the selected items (folders/disks/etc) which is color coded and you can delete directly from the graph or open an explorer window.

Myth Busting: MongoDB Scalability (it scales!)

I was talking with one of my colleagues from our Technical Account Manager team about MongoDB’s scalability. He mentioned to me that several customers have been telling him that “MongoDB doesn’t scale!” MongoDB’s scalability was in question?
