On a Windows PC (specifically Windows 7, in this case), is there a method or tool that can be used to track / monitor the I/O operations being performed on the machine? Perhaps something similar to the Task Manager, where by you are presented with a graph that shows CPU usage over time.

EDIT: To clarify; by "I/O Operations" I mean operations such as copying a file.

Sysinternals is awesome and a must-have toolset for any geek.

There is also IOMeter, which is useful for benchmarking.

Windows Sysinternals Process Explorer is a much more powerful version of the performance monitor. It shows more details on I/O, specifically the hard drives and video. I doubt it can process other I/O such as mouse and keyboard
