One of my file servers is currently very slow for users accessing files.

I have been advised that the disk drives may be overloaded with requests.

how can I check if this is the case? Performance Monitor? - what would I look for?

Thanks,

Well the First program that comes to mind is Samurize but it would take some config to set up.

http://www.computerperformance.co.uk/HealthCheck/Disk_Health.htm has some useful information
