Does anyone know of any tools that can let me know which processes are accessing the hard drives on a Windows 2000 server?

Go get yourself NTFileMon from www.sysinternals.com
shows you all the processes that have a handle to the hard disk. You can filter the output as well

I used that to figure out how MSN messenger displays banner ads.. I watched it and noticed that MSN has a hook to a file called 'links.txt' in your profile directory/local settings/temp
I have a look at that file.. deleted everything in it, and then made the file read only... now MSN doesnt give me banner ads :)

There is also RegMon which shows you all registry accesses..

Both together are very useful to figure out things like where a program stores its license keys etc

hey sahir ,
a lil while back , in installed win2k server on my machine and played around with it a lil.. i noticed that using the task manager i could see a lot of processes depending upon the services running , however i could not kill few of those processes. I then installed a utility called win 2k administration tools ( digit Magazine) and using one of its features i could actually now kill those processes which i earlier could not ..... any ideas ??
