Does anyone know of a script that will do the following. User can run the script themselves but we need to report back their profile sizes or anywhere there are documents stored on the machine, for example some users could have documents stores elsewhere or My Documents mapped differently.

Anyway, what i am looking for is a script that the users can run by clicking, this will then scan their machine and create a CSV in their logon name showing the directory of their profile and size back to a remote location.

Thanks in Advance

Does this mean the script must check the user's entire c: drive? Also at possibly random locations?

Do you have a list of what you are looking for (specifically file extensions, and what details you want in your CSV file?)
Obviously, your remote location will need to let the users have access..  but, something like this would work for you.. )

Your base reporting script would be something like this: maybe something like c:\Reports\New-ProfileReport.ps1
$TxtSize = 0
$XlsSize = 0
$PPTSize = 0
$DocSize = 0
$XlsxSize = 0
$PPTxSize = 0
$DocxSize = 0

$Files = get-childitem -path $env:userprofile -recurse -include *.txt,*.xls,*.ppt,*.doc,*.docx*.xlsx,*.pptx
$files | where-object { $_.name -like '*.txt' } | foreach-object { $TxtSize += $_.length }
$files | where-object { $_.name -like '*.xls' } | foreach-object { $XlsSize += $_.length }
$files | where-object { $_.name -like '*.ppt' } | foreach-object { $PPTSize += $_.length }
$files | where-object { $_.name -like '*.doc' } | foreach-object { $DocSize += $_.length }
$files | where-object { $_.name -like '*.xlsx } | foreach-object { $XlsxSize += $_.length }
$files | where-object { $_.name -like '*.pptx' } | foreach-object { $PPTxSize += $_.length }
$files | where-object { $_.name -like '*.docx' } | foreach-object { $DocxSize += $_.length }
$Output = "Size of Text Files: $($TxtSize/1KB) kb"
$Output += "Size of Xls Files: $($XlsSize/1KB) kb"
$Output += "Size of PPT Files: $($PPTSize/1KB) kb"
$Output += "Size of Doc Files: $($DocSize/1KB) kb"
$Output += "Size of Xlsx Files: $($XlsxSize/1KB) kb"
$Output += "Size of PPTx Files: $($PPTxSize/1KB) kb"
$Output += "Size of Docx Files: $($DocxSize/1KB) kb"
$Output += "TotalSize: $($TxtSize + $XlsSize + $PPTSize + $DocSize + $XlsxSize + $PPTxSize + $DocxSize)"
$Output += "`r`n`r`n"
$Output += ($files | select-object -property Name,FullName,CreationTime,LastWriteTime,Length | convertto-csv -notypeinformation)
$Output | out-file -encoding ascii -filepath "\\server\share\$([datetime]::now.tostring('yyyy-MM-dd'))_$env:username`_ProfileDirectoryFiles.csv" 

Open in new window


Then you will put together a small script to run it.. even just a batch file.. something like this: c:\Reports\RunMyProfileReport.cmd
@echo off
powershell.exe -noprofile -noninteractive -file c:\Reports\New-ProfileReport.ps1

Open in new window


You give the users a shortcut to the batch file (possibly changing directories as need be)
