So I guess this wouldn't even work with multiple domains, which is what
we have.

I don't know if the script Mike pointed us to requires elevated access
or
not, but it would help with not knowing the path. If you do have the
access,
you could do a generic search: dir \\servername\d$\*.edb /s. Slightly
faster
would be to use psexec (from sysinternals.com) to run the dir command,
but
again, that requires access.

BTW, my "method" only tells you the actual disk space used by the .edb
files, it doesn't give you the combined .edb and .stm size, which is how
Exchange calculates total database size.

Yea, but what if you don't know the path and don't have access at that
level?

It doesn't take much. At a command prompt, run:

dir \\servername\d$\exchsrvr\mdbdata\*.edb.  Use the appropriate admin
drive
share as it pertains to your installation, and if enabled.

Is there any way to find the size of a remote Exchange server's
Information Store (.edb)?  Any scripts out there that can do this?
