db.SpaceAvailable.ToString)  
Console.WriteLine("database size (MB): " + _  
db.Size.ToString)  

PowerShell

$srv = new-Object Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Server("(local)")  
$db = New-Object Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Database  
$db = $srv.Databases.Item("AdventureWorks2012")  

Write-Host "data space usage (KB):" $db.DataSpaceUsage  
Write-Host "index space usage (KB):" $db.IndexSpaceUsage  
Write-Host "space available (KB):" $db.SpaceAvailable  
Write-Host "database size (MB):" $db.Size  

Remarks

The size is specified in megabytes and should be the same as when the database was originally created unless you have opted to automatically grow or shrink the database. The space allocated in the database can be determined by using the SpaceAvailable property.
