Finding programs that are accessing HDDFollow

#1 Mar 26 2011 at 9:08 PM Rating: Good
I am trying to discover which programs that are "using" my portable hard drive so I can stop them, is there a program out there that will show me a list of programs that are read/writing to hard drives?

I thought it might be Adobe Bridge, but I was wrong.

I find sysinternals "Filemon" freeware utility to be the easiest method. This article has a few other tricks to try though if you like: http://www.raymond.cc/blog/archives/2008/04/05/find-out-what-program-is-secretly-accessing-your-hard-disk-drive/

intersting read Kao, but the links to the utility are dead. I did a google on it and went to the developer's website and found it was removed there as well.

side note, you have css errors in tooltips.css lol

Try Process Monitor from the same collection of utilities.
