This might be overkill but FileLocator Pro supports a similar syntax, e.g. flow NEAR:10 meter.

comment External hard drive sounds like it's being scanned constantly
@PeterMortensen No, you need to first limit to something like 'Path' Begins with 'C:\' have a look to see what's happening then further drill down on 'Process' or 'Operation'. If you just want an overview Resource Monitor is better but if you want to know what is actually hitting the disk this is the way to do it.
