SCOM is not required. You can use this batch file :

@echo off

setlocal enabledelayedexpansion

set "SEARCH_DIR=%~1"
set FILE_SIZE=0

if not exist "%SEARCH_DIR%" (
    echo Usage: %~nx0 directory 
    echo Lists all files in given directory and its subdirectories that have a zero size
    echo.
    echo "%SEARCH_DIR%" does not exist.
    exit /b 1
)

for /R "%SEARCH_DIR%" %%F in (*) do (
    if exist "%%F" if %%~zF EQU %FILE_SIZE% echo %%F
)

Open in new window
