I don't know if ReddUK's solution will work in your situation or not.  Does that program scan continually or just when you tell it to?  That could add considerable network traffic if it is trying to continually scan the network.  

A better option might be to use something on the file server itself, as this will not cause additional traffic on the network.  http://www.windowsnetworking.com/articles_tutorials/Storage-Monitoring-Reporting.html.  This involves setting up and using the default storage reports that are already on Windows 2003 R2.  Once you configure the reports, you can even have them email you when a trigger is activated.

The Dude is a free app that monitors the bandwidth over your network.  Let it do a scan (no agents needed & let it show you which device is sucking up the bandwidth.

That does sound like a nice product.  I still like the idea of using a built-in tool on the server itself versus running another outside tool.  This reporting is already part of Windows and works well.  Why use another tool?
