In SSMS, there's a Generate Script utility (read:  only available under version 2008 and up) .

Here are the steps you would need to take to make use of the utility:

  1. Right click on the database you're interested in and go to Tasks -> Generate Scripts
  2. Select the tables and/or any other objects you'd like in order to get them into the script.
  3. Navigate to Set scripting options. Click on Advanced.
  4. Under the General category, navigate to Type of data to script
  5. Select the Schema and Data option to get the insert statements generated. Click OK.


Here's an example using forfiles to scan your storage. This command line will look for files over 200mb on the C:\ drive after 1/1/2014.

forfiles /P C:\ /M *.* /S /D +"01/01/2014"  /C "cmd /c if @fsize gtr 209715200 echo @path @fsize @fdate @ftime"
