Is there a utility built into Windows that will allow me to monitor the disk usage of a single file/folder?

If nothing is built-in, is there a tool I can install to achieve this?

For CPU usage of a process, I can use the built-in Performance Monitor with a Data Collector Set. This doesn't seem to work if I'd like to monitor disk usage of a single file/folder though.

  • Did you already consider installing a Linux app on your Windows computer? This might make it possible to use du . UNIX command. – Dominique May 29 '18 at 12:45
  • @Dominique thank you for the suggestion. That didn't cross my mind. I can install Disk Usage (du) from Windows Sysinternals and use the Task Scheduler to run it when I require. If you submit your response as an Answer I can mark it as answered. – quickblueblur May 29 '18 at 12:52
