Is there a way (from Central Admin or using PowerShell) to get the storage used by each user I checked Web Analystics and Storage Metrics but found nothing useful

For Example:

If I have 10 documents uploaded to a site that is used by 2 users (X and Y) Can I know how many MBs are uploaded by X and how many MBs are uploaded by Y

I dont think so that you will get this kind of statistics OOTB, even if you try to write some piece of code it will not accurate.

  • As you Know, SharePoint is the collaboration tool and if i create a document then somebody else make a change to that document, after that another user make a change then under which user you want to calculate this storage. So it is very much complex thing.
  • If you want put some restriction on user's storage then you can think about creating a subsite for each user or a Document library for each user, From here you can monitor their storage.
  • Other thing is allow the user to create mysite and then set quota on it.
  • I don't know how I missed the first point when asked my question :) .. thanks for elaboration @Waqas
