Monitor Network Drive Access

Can anybody point me to an application that would monitor a PC (or program) and as it is running show what drives (especially network drives) are being accessed?

You may have the answer

You may have the answer already on your machine. Right click on My Computer -> Manage -> Performance Logs and Alerts -> Trace logs

Teach yourself how to create a trace Log for Disk I/O and File I/O, start and stop the trace log, etc. Process the log with the commandline tool "tracerpt.exe". like most all Windows programs, use the /? switch to learn the commandline options. You'll get a .csv file you can open with Excel or OO and then do custom filters to find the info you want.

How do I know all this? Because I just taught myself all that in the last 20 minutes so you should have no problem figure it all out. Wink

Tracerpt.exe may or may not be in a Windows Resource Kit or Support Tool download. I'll leave that for you to figure out too.
