Windows 7: Disk Activity is NOT accurate in Resource Monitor....not even close!

Disk Activity is NOT accurate in Resource Monitor....not even close!

OK...I don't know what to say about this one, but it's very odd.

If I go under disk activity in resource monitor while copying a file (tried with ones that were 100MB, 2GB and in between) I will see it being copied at an extremely slow rate - usually around 5-10MB/s. However, my transfer window tells me the file copied over already at a typical fast rate. Now, the really odd thing is that I can even eject the drive (if it's external) safely and resource monitor will still be showing the file as copying at a slow pace! I've verified that I have no file corruption by using MD5 checksums.

The resource monitor can be showing this going on for a long time even with the drive disconnected! Does anyone have any idea?
