Need script to determine thin disks and used space

I found this site that lists a PowerCLI script but I must be doing something wrong since the CSV is always blank, no headers. There were some comments at the bottom but it didn't seem to go anywhere.
Script I Tested

Can someone suggest a script that I can use that will allow me to see all VM's and disks that are thin provisioned, what their total size is, what they are currently using and if possible how much space they need to expand to the entire amount. We need to see how much more space is needed to expand all thin disks in the farm.

Hello,
That thread is to get info on Datastores and free space. This thread is to get info on VM's with thin provisioned disks, what they are using, and what the max they can use is with the purpose of determining how much space is needed in a cluster to convert all those thin disks to thick

Hi,

I use two routines I downloaded beign out-DataTable and then write-DataTable, but here is the main body of my script

# Main Body
foreach( $s in Invoke-Sqlcmd -Query ‘select distinct ss.FQDN as ServerName from dbo.SQLServer ss where isWMIWorking = 1 and ( DateDecommissioned is null or DateDecommissioned > dateadd( day, datediff( day, 0, getdate()), 0 )) and ( Domain is null or Domain like ''mydomain.local'' ) ’ -Database mylogging -ServerInstance myserver\myinstance ) {
    write-output $s.ServerName
   
    #$d = null
   
   
    $d = Get-WmiObject -computername ( $s.ServerName ) Win32_LogicalDisk -filter "DriveType=3" | foreach {
        add-member -in $_ -membertype noteproperty UsageDT $((Get-Date).ToString("yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss"))
        add-member -in $_ -membertype noteproperty SizeGB $([math]::round(($_.Size/1GB),2))
        add-member -in $_ -membertype noteproperty UsedGB $([math]::round((($_.Size - $_.FreeSpace ) /1GB ), 2 ))
        add-member -in $_ -membertype noteproperty FreeGB $([math]::round(($_.FreeSpace/1GB),2))
        add-member -in $_ -membertype noteproperty PercentUsed $([math]::round(((1 - [float]$_.FreeSpace/[float]$_.Size) * 100),2)) -passThru
        } | Select UsageDT, SystemName, Caption, VolumeName, SizeGB, UsedGB, FreeGB, PercentUsed | out-DataTable      
    ;
   
    Write-DataTable -ServerInstance "myserver\myinstance" -Database mylogging -TableName DiskUsage -Data $d

    }
