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.

What does your script specifically do? That may allow us to get more specific with a recommendation.

comment Database size after importing the .sql file
There is absolutely no way to determine that. If the .sql file is 34.5 GB of comments then you'd have no problem :-) What is in the SQL file? (this comment is assuming SQL Server)

comment How can I filter an extended event by database in SQL Server 2008 R2
@JustinDearing Honestly, all I do is just hard code the database ID and then put a comment right next to it with the database name so my future-me knows what I intended without having to resolve it. It has worked for me with no issues.

@ShawnMelton No, I'm saying the package is spelled "sqlserver" not "sqlsever". Also, there is no database_name action in 2008 R2.

You have a typo. Should be "sqlserver.database_name".
