Can't find what is accessing drives, even in perfmon...at a loss for how to check.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I haven't restarted yet to see if that helps, because I want to look at what is accessing my drive(s) in windows performance monitor, but I hardly see any accesses to the drive I can hear working, only a few I believe I initiated by opening the drive in explorer (that's what shows up)

I KNOW my F:\ drive is being constantly accessed.

I did just do a full read/rewrite data refresh with Hard Disk Sentinel to see if it would fix a severe pending sector buildup on the drive, and it did, taking 361 pending down to 0, and it is showing 68 bad sectors. Could it be reconstruction going on?

The test I ran to refresh the data surface ended hours ago so I doubt that it's still rearranging, but I don't see anything actively using that drive in Perfmon either so I'm at a loss.

I shut down Kaspersky and Malwarebytes is waiting for a restart after a scan but if I'm correct I should STILL be seeing SOMETHING accessing the F:\ disk because I can hear it loud and clearly doing a lot of...something. That is of course if the built in disk controller isn't hard at work doing...whatever...

Any help?

I'd go for Sysinternals. DiskMon within it should show you what is going on. Though it isn't easy to decipher. You probably still have moves going on.

I'd get the entire Sysinternals suite here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/default

Thank you I'll have a look at that. I think I discovered what was going on though I'm not totally sure. I'm going to look into it more if it crops up again, for now the computer seems idle. I believe it may have been Kaspersky doing something. rolleyes.gif they made their user interface more "stupid proof" and it's...well...stupid now.
