# Get Used rather than Provisioned space in PowerCLI

I'm trying to run a capacity report, and when I run the Get-HardDisk cmdlet in PowerCLI, the value it returns for CapacityKB is the Provisioned space. For example, let's say I've thin provisioned a 200GB disk, which is currently using say 30GB, it returns the 200GB value.

Is there any way I can get the other value? I need to know how much disk space is actually being used on the LUN by the vmdk file. My PowerCLI version is 5.0.1.

Just query the VM with get-vm and add | Select UsedSpaceGB.

For example, you could type:

get-vm | Select Name, UsedSpaceGB, ProvisionedSpaceGB

To write this information into a .CSV file just append |export-csv "C:\Path\to\my\file.csv". –  Gerald Schneider Feb 19 '13 at 11:02
