PowercLi - a simple 'Get-Datastore' - will return all Datastores, the Capacity and the amount of free space.
Simply schedule this daily and pipe the outout to a file somewhere and you will have all the info you need.

yes, interesting workaround.
I could dump datastore objects using export-clixml to a file and read it in the next day.
It will be an interesting scripting challenge. But I guess there is no other option since that data is not available via get-view or get-stat
now that's what I call answered! I need a triple points button when awarding that the correct answer lol
Thanks heaps LucD!
