WestonGroup,

It is like dejavu. :D  I was part of a similar discussion just the other day and posted a suggestion.  There were also some other great programs mentioned.  Take a look at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Q_22029265.html.  I have used Diruse and can help you with finding or using it.  It is free from MS.

Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.

WestonGroup,

Also FileMon monitors and displays file system activity on a system in real-time. Its advanced capabilities make it a powerful tool for exploring the way Windows works, seeing how applications use the files and DLLs, or tracking down problems in system or application file configurations. Filemon's timestamping feature will show you precisely when every open, read, write or delete, happens, and its status column tells you the outcome
