Is there any easy way to view Hyper-V's free disk space? I have a Windows 2012 R2 Server that is hosting the Hyper-V manager and I need to know the amount of free disk space. Is there a way to view it with the manager? Is there a way to view disk space on the server itself without running a script?

    To be clear, are you just wanting the free disk space of the Hyper-V host? Does the host have local disks that you are using for storage? Does it use a SAN? – Alex McKenzie Jan 24 '14 at 19:29
  • Yes, I want to view how much free disk space is on the Hyper-V host. Currently it's just local disks but we will have a SAN attached later, probably by ISCSI. – smiler07 Jan 27 '14 at 15:39
