This quick article includes a discussion on SQL Server tools to determine the size of tables in a database. It also has a downloadable script I wrote to find the largest tables in a database.

Good bit of SQL. Just what I needed at 0600 when trying to compare the sizes of tables in a recovered database.

Thanks

Karl

This script does this for all tables in a database, and analyzes the space used per row for data and indexes.
