I have an already existing app that has a production release coming up and I am being asked to estimate growth for the changes being made. What is the best way to estimate growth on an existing app when no previous estimates have been done. For the columns that are being added.

Are there standards that should be used? or typical formulas?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

If you added new columns in the table, you can estimate space needed like: total new column(s) length x rows count in the table.
