comment Disk Space usage
This should be pulled outside of SQL Server. Manage operating system things in the operating system in my opinion. Use SQL Server to store the data, by all means, and create a report off of the data. But don't pull the data from within SQL Server.

comment Script Rename of SQL Server Database and Database Files
That could quite easily be automated through PowerShell. Using SMO, the SQL work is concise and straightforward, and then the rename of the database files is a one-liner.
