Powershell Disk space on all folders on drive

Does anyone have a script that works in powershell Windows Server 2008 R2, that gives me the folder space on 2 drives.

I need the folder size:   Total size of folder, remaining size of folder.
All folders on a particular drive.

I tried some scripts but either they did not work, or did not give me what I needed.

I know very little about powershell.
Thanks

From what you are asking for sounds impossible given the remaining space is on the drive not the folder.
Your question seems to suggest you use file share resource handler that sets a quota for a folder and you are looking for powershell mechanism that will report that info while running locally.
Presumably the scripts you've seen deal with reporting the folder sizes as you want, using a list with your set limits on the various folders will let the script you have seen to calculate the remaining space for those folders.

No quotas involved.

I just want the disk space taken and remaining on the folders on the root C:\ or E:\, what your telling me is this is impossible?

The remaining space is reflected as free space on the drive not on the individual folders.
You can see the aggregate space consumed on the drive, or go through getting the space consumed on each folder.

powershell has access to the wmi interface as well

WMI is the way to go for what you want.  The Win32_LogicalDisk or the Win32_Volume are the objects that you can use to see the Capacity and Free Space.

Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_LogicalDisk -ComputerName computer | Where-Object { $_.DriveType -eq 3 } | 
Select Name, Size, FreeSpace | ft * -auto
