    “If one brings so much courage to this world the world has to kill them or break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.” Earnest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms.

    The easiest way to do it is to check in Enterprise manager daily to see what the current size is, then keep the daily records in a spreadsheet, or database. If you are looking for a pre-packaged too, I think Quest Software has something for that. I think Microsoft is also getting into the game, as well, with a product I can not remember the name of. Some SQL Server add on.

    Or you could write a job that copies sysobjects and sysindexes into a table that you aggregate on a regualr basis. Swipe code from sp_spaceused to understand how to use that information.
