Show database size info across an instance

By Richard Douglas,

This script will insert data about the sizes of all databases on the instance into a predetermined table - DatabaseGrowth. It can be used to perform a snapshot at a point in time by running in SSMS or made into a job to chart the growth of databases over time.

Please note that OBJECT_SCHEMA_NAME and DATA_COMPRESSION are SQL 2008 features.
If running on SQL Server 2005:
The condition using OBJECT_SCHEMA_NAME can be removed and replaced with an appropriate JOIN to sys.schemas.
Comment out the use of DATA_COMPRESSION WHEN creating storage table.

The code assumes the existance of the database DBAControl. This can be changed to use TempDB to test the code by replacing each occurence of the word "DBAControl".
Remember never run untrusted code on a Production Server, always review and then run on a development instance first!
