ALAS, POOR STORAGE SPACE ALLOCATION, WE KNEW YOU WELL
Back in WSS 3.0 there was an additional report you could run at the site collection level called Storage
Space Allocation. This single report would show you the storage consumed by each individual site,
library, or list so you could see which portion of the site collection was consuming your storage.
Unfortunately, this report is no longer available in SharePoint Foundation. According to Microsoft,
the report was known to cause issues with SQL Server. So, rather than ix it, Microsoft simply
removed the feature. So, to see the space usage of individual items in the site collection, you’ll
need to manually check each one.
