Checking free disk space from T/SQL

Published On: 2008-04-28By:

I’ve seen some very creative ways to see how much free disk space SQL Servers have.  Most make use of xp_cmdshell which some very complex dos commands or vbscripts.

However there is a much easier way.  Microsoft has included the system extended stored procedure xp_fixeddrives.  It returns the all the fixed drives and the amount of free space in megs.
