Users of SharePoint 2007 will have noticed that Microsoft had removed the Storage Management page when SharePoint 2010 was released. Well, the good news is this has made a return in Service Pack 1 with a new look, showing the top 100 largest files or containers across a site collection.
I get to the Storage Metrics page by selecting Site Actions –> Site Settings and then choosing Storage Metrics under the Site Collection heading. But, before being able to use the new Storage Metrics feature I had to upgrade my content database. The error message reads: “Content database needs to be upgraded to support this operation”.
I wasn’t entirely sure how to upgrade the content database, as I’d not done this before and drew a blank with Google, so after a bit of investigation on the server I discovered it took a few minutes using the following command:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web ServerExtensions\14\bin\psconfig.exe –cmd upgrade
After successfully ran the command, now am able to see the results in metrics page.
If the configuration stall and got the error some thing like "The farm is being upgraded in the timer service process. The task is XX% completed."
Then have a look the follwoing post.
Reference is here.
