How to: Get a list of fixed drives and their free space inside SQL Server

I didn’t know that I could do this inside SQL Server

EXEC master..xp_fixeddrives

Executing the procedure onmy server gave me this result set:

drive  MB free
C       5897
E       33334

Man, I think it’s about time I upgrade and brush up my SQL skills. I don’t know why you would do it inside SQL Server. But then again it’s pretty cool to know that something like this exist. You never know, you might need it someday.
