It's probably not as useful as you want, but if you do an incremental
dump from the last release (around the 'Copy' date in 'vos examine
vol.readonly'), the size of the dump should give you a good idea.

A tool to compute this to run on the fileserver in question should be
fairly easy; I can't think of an existing one, though.
