Get MyDocument and Desktop Folder size for all computer in the network


This Script will read the computer list from a CSV file and scan all the computer in the list to get the current size for MyDocumet and Desktop folder in the remote PC.
This script is very useful to size your VDI environment and get an idea about the expected user profile, especially when all the users are using regularly PC and storing all their content on the desktop and MyDocuments
I chose to get the information from the CSV file as I request from the network team for the most recent computers list which is connected to the network. the active directory can contain some old computer object or test pc, which will increase the percentage of failed scan. Anyway, if you prefer to get the list from AD you still can do it by using 
Get-ADComputer -filter * | Export-Csv -NoTypeInformation -Path c:\temp.csv

#This script will scan the network and get the users desktop and mydocument profile size
#This Script will help you in giving you an idea about the users data
# I wrote this script as I needed to know how much users have in their desktop and MyDocument folder
#These data should be moved to the servers as a part of VDI Project implementation.

# Get the computer objects
# Tested on Windows 10

#To use the Script .\Get-DesktopnDocs.ps1 -FullPathForSoruce C:\PCList.csv -ResultDestination C:\MyFinzalResult.csv
#You can use the -Verbose parameter for more information during the runtime

Does your website have a contact page? I'm having a tough time locating it but,
I'd like to shoot you an e-mail. I've got some ideas for
your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great
website and I look forward to seeing it develop over time.
