Script 01

To retrieve file size information for all databases, you can use the following TSQL code

    DatabaseName = DB_NAME(database_id), -- Database name
    LogSizeMB = CAST(SUM(CASE WHEN type_desc = 'LOG' THEN size END) * 8. / 1024 AS DECIMAL(8,2)), -- Log file size in MB
    DataFileSizeMB = CAST(SUM(CASE WHEN type_desc = 'ROWS' THEN size END) * 8. / 1024 AS DECIMAL(8,2)), -- Data file size in MB
    TotalSizeMB = CAST(SUM(size) * 8. / 1024 AS DECIMAL(8,2)) -- Total size (combined log and data) in MB
FROM sys.master_files WITH(NOWAIT) -- Retrieve file information from sys.master_files
WHERE type_desc IN ('LOG', 'ROWS') -- Filter for log and data files
GROUP BY database_id -- Group the results by database_id
ORDER BY DatabaseName; -- Order the results by database name

Script 02

Here’s the T-SQL code to retrieve file information for all databases

-- Retrieve the file information for all databases
    DB_NAME(database_id) AS DatabaseName, -- Alias for the database name
    Name AS Logical_Name, -- Alias for the logical name of the file
    Physical_Name, -- Physical name of the file
    (size * 8) / 1024 AS SizeMB -- Calculate file size in MB
FROM sys.master_files
WHERE database_id > 4; -- Exclude system databases

GO -- Terminate the batch
