I would like to know the size increase rate of a disk drive that stores database backups.

I have overheard from some network people they have a tool to check that, for example to find out in last year- each month what is the size increase of the drive/folder.

Anyone knows what the tool is?

Thanks

You could just query the backupset table and get the space of the backups that way, unless the drive/folders also store none backup files.

Couldn't monitoring tools such as SCOM accomplish what you are trying to do?

We capture size a different way, however you can use backup_size in backupset, write to a dim/fact table and build a cube off of. Then drop in an excel pivot table to drive a nice chart showing growth over time..

I found this software back in the summer. Has a 15 day free trial. I installed it for testing and it was nice. You can see if it will do what you are wanting.
