Found a nice little script which will check a system and report drive space. In case the original link disappears; here it is. Option Explicit const strComputer = "." const strReport = "c:\diskspace.txt" Dim objWMIService, objItem, colItems Dim strDriveType, strDiskSize, txt Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2") Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_LogicalDisk _ WHERE DriveType=3") txt = "Drive" & vbtab & "Size" & vbtab & "Used" & vbtab & "Free" _ & vbtab & "Free(%)" & vbcrlf For Each objItem in colItems DIM pctFreeSpace,strFreeSpace,strusedSpace pctFreeSpace = INT((objItem.FreeSpace / objItem.Size) * 1000)/10 strDiskSize = Int(objItem.Size /1073741824) & "Gb" strFreeSpace = Int(objItem.FreeSpace /1073741824) & "Gb" strUsedSpace = Int((objItem.Size-objItem.FreeSpace)/1073741824) & "Gb" txt = txt & objItem.Name & vbtab & strDiskSize & vbtab & strUsedSpace _ & vbTab & strFreeSpace & vbtab & pctFreeSpace & vbcrlf Next writeTextFile txt, strReport wscript.echo "Report written to " & strReport & vbcrlf & vbcrlf & txt ' Procedure to write output to a text file private sub writeTextFile(byval txt,byval strTextFilePath) Dim objFSO,objTextFile set objFSO = createobject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") set objTextFile = objFSO.CreateTextFile(strTextFilePath) objTextFile.Write(txt) objTextFile.Close SET objTextFile = nothing end sub

wscript.echo without a charriage return.Saturday, August 25th, 2012
I was writing a small script to obtain and display server network information. Part of a project to re-ip a network.
One thing I wanted to have was formatted output and found wscript.echo was adding a carriage return to the output. I looked around to see if there was a way to disable it.
wscript.echo does this by design. There is no way to disable it.
The way to get around this is to use : Wscript.StdOut.Write
Wscript.StdOut.Write (“Enter something: “)
Wscript.StdOut.Write “You entered : ” & Wscript.StdIn.ReadLine
You will have to add is a “vbCrLf” at the end to cause a CR.
