How to check "Storage Space Allocation" in foundation 2010

Using Foundation 2010 for the first time.  I need to be able to report to "the powers" that Sub-Site A is using X-MB, Sub-Site B is using Y-MB, etc...
In WSS3 this was very simple I'd go to "site actions - site settings" and then under "Site collection administration" was the "Storage space allocation" where I could get a glimpse at how much space is used and how much each document library was using, etc.  I can't seem to find this in Foundation 2010 and my host is saying that it's not possible, but I'm not sure that the host fully understands what I'm asking.  While I wouldn't find it unbeleavable that Microsoft took out a feature that I used all the time, I'd be surprised if it was found that the "Storage Space Allocation" option of WSS3 was removed.  
Anyone know how to check the equilivant of "Storage Space Allocation" in Foundataion 2010?

have you looked at PowerShell?

real easy to script out content database size.

sure there is a way to get the site size(s).

Wrote this to get the size of all my content databases before we started our 2007 --> 2010 migration.

When it's a hosted service, IE the only way that I "log in to" the server is to open up a webpage, I don't have the option of PowerShell.  Thanks for the reply anyway.

that sucks.

Can you open sites with SharePoint Designer?

I don't know if I could or not.  At this point in time this is a dead topic.  I posted the question like 6 weeks ago.  I needed access to the "Storage space allocation" and Foundation 2010 could not give it to me, so I had no choice but to go with a WSS3 service.
