So. What *exactly* do you want to do here? Do you want to look
through a single directory tree, or several? One partition, or several?
What rules for 'ownership' do you want to enforce - personal files,
group ownership, ACLs, or what? Do you want to email all users, or
only users with more than K% of the total space, or only users with
more than X megs of space taken up, or only users who have used
up N% of their allotted disk space? What SMTP server will this go
through - xmail or sendmail or what?
And, most important of all, why do you want to do this in SAS? This
sort of sysadmin task is why sysadmin-type languages and shells exist.
I would do this in Perl, or in a shell script instead of using SAS.
Or else I would let the company sysadmins do it.
