I have a group of 150 servers that have unique folders on one or more drives on each server. I am looking for a way to be able to report on the amount of storage space these specific folders are taking up. There is software out there that can scan over the network and connect to shares and tell me, but it is extremely slow.
I was curious if there is a way via Powershell or VB to Provide a file to the server with the paths I need checked for size, recorded and sent back to me that would also initiate the job from the local server where the data sits?
It would be great if I could push the script and kick off the task from my laptop. Any one have a good idea.

take a look here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-au/scriptcenter/bb410849.aspx
the script repository is likely to have something you can use.
perhaps in combination with psexec (if VBscripting) (or PSremoting) (to make the script execute locally on the target server)
or consider someplace like codeplex or sourceforge
the dedicated scripting forum is here: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/ITCG/threads/
