How To Get The Size Of A Collection In Megabytes (MB)
Note: This applies to all version of DocuShare.
DocuShare does not currently have a reporting method to get the size of a collection like Microsoft Windows does.
1. Open a Command Prompt window.
2. Use the dsexport command to export a .csv file with metadata only on the collection you want to get the size.
Example: dsexport -r -m -f csv Collection-123
Note : The –r switch will export documents from sub-collections as well. Omit the –r if you only want the size of the parent collection.
3. Open the .csv file with Excel.
4. Locate the Size Column and calculate the size of each documents to get the total.
Note: The .csv file displays the size of the preferred version only.
Note: A condition file could be used in conjunction with the –c switch to retrieve only the size property.
Create your own reporting tool using the DocuShare API.
Note: A DSDN Subscription is required to receive DocuShare API support.
