Is there a tool that shows how much disk space clients are using?

I am a systems administrator at a game design studio. We use LOTS of disk space daily. We have ample disk space (4 1.09 terabyte arrays) but sometimes 10-20GB are used daily due to high resolution graphic files and game builds. I want to find a utility that will allow me to see who is using the space so I can police and patrol the network drives. Do you know of any?

Veritas StorageCentral is one such product that provides quota management and reporting. You can learn more about it at A more modest solution is Advexsoft Disk Space Inspector, which you can learn about at
