PowerShell Get site collection disk size

#Large amounts of memory are often required when SPWeb, SPSite, or SPSiteAdminsitration objects are used. So the use of these objects, or lists of these objects,
#in Windows PowerShell scripts requires proper memory management. By default, all Get commands dispose of these objects immediately after the pipeline finishes,
#but by using SPAssignment, you can assign the list of objects to a variable and dispose of the objects after they are no longer needed. You can also ensure that
#the objects remain as long as you need them, even throughout multiple iterations of commands.

# The amount of disk space that is displayed does not include the disk space used by the auditing data that will be moved with the site collection.
