Well it's always nice to see someone willing to learn.

Is there a question attached to this or is it merely a declaration of intent.

Well, storage has a broad meaning. But .........

Do you mean the equivilent DASD space that the datasets would occupy if recalled, or do you mean the number of blocks that the migrated dataset occupies on the ML2 tape.

You really must learn early that to get an answer to your question you have to give ALL of the information that we need to help you.
This is a HELP forum and not a Let's play 20 questions forum.

Hello and welcome to the forum,

As you haven't posted the requested info here, suggest you talk with your storage management people (they would have been a good place to start and then post here if you still have a doubt). They should be able to answer your storage question.

Try entering TSO comand HELP HLIST for info about listing migrated dataset information.

Examples for your purpose here could be...for individual specific files...

HLIST DSN(specific.data.set.name) MCD SUM ODS(output.file)

or...for a generic list...starting with part of the dsname to the end of a full qualifier..

HLIST LEVEL(data.set.name.prefix) MCD SUM ODS(output.file)

Otherwise look into ISMF (or Naviquest) or or the IDCAMS DCOLLECT command....but suggest you talk to your Storage Admin as a starting point.
