Program to check size of a folder

I have a 2008 r2 files server.  My users have access to many folders.  This file server contains user folders too.  Many of my users have a folder called VPS.  I'm trying to find a program that will allow me to check the size of this folder for each user.  I'm finding that my users are just storing this information and it's something that's not needed and is taking up alot of space unnecessarly. Is there anything I can download for free that will check the size of this folder and report it back to me - per user?

I think the best tool for this is Tree Size Pro (Jam Software). It will give you a list of folder in size order so you can easily see what folders are larger than you might wish. Excellent server tool and I use it myself.

I actually used WinDirstat. the only problem is I had to go into each folder of each users to find the particular VPS folder and size.  Unless I'm doing something wrong.
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
When I use Tree Size, a large sub folder will cause a parent folder to drift up in the size list.

If you need to find a specific folder, you need to look for that.
