some ideas...

1) have a script run on the server and output the file size to a text
file which can then be retrieved via web server and sent to MRTG.
2) Not sure if there is any inetd available for win32 but another one
would be have inetd(or equivilent) listen on a port, when it connects
run the script that outputs the file size.
3) install ssh on the server and have a script login and check the size.
4) if the systems are on the same lan, export the filesystem and have
the MRTG host mount it and check it that way
