Inventory User profile space usage

Created: 15 Dec 2012 • Updated: 12 Feb 2013 | 1 comment
This issue has been solved. See solution.

 Is there way to create a custom inventory to show me how much disk space user profiles are taking up on their systems?  The built in inventory only shows me total used and free disk space on the user partition.  We want to implement vmware view personae across all systems physical and virtual but we need to know how much disk space we well require on the back end.

You can use VBScript to get the folder size, via the Folder object [1]

You also need to handle the parsing of the user profiles, and create a NSE via VBScript. But this last part is already well documented [2][3] depending on your version.

I am currently off-net, on a retreat of some kind. I'll be back real soon, and you sure will hear from me then ;-).
