  • I'm going to assume that when you say it didn't work, it still estimated all 10 users on the machine?  Try it this way:

    scanstate.exe "C:\storepath" /p:spacereq.xml /ue:*\* /ui:win7oi\tar /ui:win7oi\mar

    This will exclude everyone, and then only include those you want.

  • Yes, the /p switch will create an estimate.  Jason has a good blog post and some code for collecting this kind of information with Config Manager, but you could probably adapt it to your needs: http://blog.configmgrftw.com/?p=521

  • Thanks DC...

    If we gave /p:spacerequirement.xml it will estimate the space for all user. For instance if we have 10 users, i need to estimate the space for 2 users.

    I tried the below command but it doesn't work...

    sacanstate.exe "C:\storepath" /p:spacereq.xml /ui:win7oi\tar /ui:win7oi\mar

    Is there any option there to make this works.

    Thanks
