Files In Use on Win/2k

By tomh ·
Is there a way to determine what files are in use by the operating system and by the user logged on locally to the NT Server/2k computer. I know you can see what remote users have open by using "Start - Settings - Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Shared Folders - Open Files". However, it doesn't show files opened by the operating system or the user logged on locally to the server.

Thanks,
Tom

OS runs services so you will find them in task manager and also control panel services.

To see the users on a machine you need to link to it from a remote machine, otherwise it won't show.

I'm able to see files that a remote user has open using AdministrativeTools/ComputerManager in control panel. But what if I'm running an application (not a service) locally on the server. How can I tell what files are opened by the application?

Go to http://www.sysinternals.com/ntutil.htm and download the FileMon utility. It will show all system file activity in real time.
