Is there a way I can track all hard drive usage (applications, OS processes, page files, and indexes)? I would want the statistics broken down per drive and into read and writes. I am running Windows 7 64 bit and I have multiple drives.

bit9 might be able to do this for you. I know it calculates parity on all files that are accessed...

Depends on what you are actually trying to do...

Mainly statistics tracking. I'm going to get a SSD and I kind of want to know how much I write to my fast primary disk (but I am almost constantly downloading to my storage drives). I know I'm probably not going to hit any limits with my usual usage but I'm just kind of curious. – CookieOfFortune Dec 20 '12 at 15:11
I wouldnt worry about it... just get a fast system disk, and put slow stuff on the big spin disks. If you notice latency on an app or two, put them on the SSD – Alives Dec 21 '12 at 23:02
I'm not really worried, the question is mainly for curiosity's sake. – CookieOfFortune Dec 26 '12 at 11:33
