We're currently in the process of analyzing a third-party application, and we noticed it does a LOT of file I/O.   However, we're curious as to which files it's accessing.  All the IO is on the local machine.

Are there any programs that can monitor this?  Kind of like TCPView from SysInternals, which tells you which process is accessing which files, bytes read and written, etc.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Seems you've come already pretty close ;) Have you tried FileMon from Sysinternals already?
