In the installation manual it shows how once you have indexed some data by using the "du -shc hot_v*/rawdata" command you are able to determine how large the compressed persisted raw data is. What is the equivalent command on a windows server?

Windows does not come with a command line tool for this. However, you can either simply select the relevant directories in Windows Explorer, right-click, and choose "Properties", or you can download and use the SysInternals du tool from: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896651.aspx and run

for /d %i in (hot_v*) do du.exe -q "%i\rawdata"
