Dear all, I like to calculate my database size. Can you tell me the views and formula to calculate my DB size please?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If the database already exists, you can simply right click on the database and select properties. This will show you the space used, and the free space. Subtract the two and you’ll get the space used.

If it’s for a new database, there is an article over on SearchSQLServer.com which shows how to calculate the space needed. It’s based on SQL Server, but the process is the same for all platforms.

    The size shown by right click on database may not be the actual size consumed by the database, it will be including the white space occupied which could be marginal to considerable.
