    Storage Reporting

    I would like to be able to find out what volume of .jpg files are being stored in individual users directories.

    What I need is something that will tell me that user A has 300Meg of *.jpg, etc

    Does such a tool exist, please? (Preferably a free one! )

    Windirstat will show you that sort of thing visually. If you want some sort of text-based reporting you'll need to use something else though.

    I've managed to find TreeSize freeware on the internet - has anyone had any experience of this? I'd need to run it on our Windows 2003 server

    The free version has a limit on the number of files it can scan IIRC. I've used it and found it useful.

    There's our own members Nasty File Search too that may do the trick.

    I've found JDiskReport quick good too (see http://jgoodies.com/freeware/jdiskreport/index.html ).

    Windows Server 2003 R2 can also do some of this reporting.
