Powershell - Get folder size

So i ran into a situation where i needed to get the size of a set of folders, allot of folders. I created this powershell script to do a couple of things

1. point to the root of where the folders reside
2. list all the folders in that directory
3. recursivly go through each folder and sub-folders to and get the total sum of the size of folders
4. out-put the size and name of folder both on screen and to a text file.
Enjoy!



$rootPath = "C:\Folders\"
$colItems1 = Get-ChildItem $rootPath
foreach ($i in $colItems1)
{
$colItems = (Get-ChildItem -recurse "$rootPath\$i" | Measure-Object -property length -sum)
"{0:N2}" -f ($colItems.sum / 1MB) + " MB,$i"
"{0:N2}" -f ($colItems.sum / 1MB) + " MB,$i" >>C:\result.txt
}

HP not supporting all servers.........

Well this is rather unfortunate since the servers we bought a year ago are all G6's but i guess that is how IT goes.
HP will only officially support G7 and G8 server series.
