Windows 7: W7 Resource Monitor shows activity on wrong drive

It's probably been a while since it rebooted. Usually I only do that when Windows update asks for it.

I'll run SFC at some point this weekend and see what happens.

Ya maybe you should try a reboot on the system to see if it helps and also run the sfc command if that doesn't fix it

The graphs are not incorrect, Resource Monitor is not incorrect. If they were, the whole system would be incorrect, which it might be. What is this "1" folder on the I: drive? That is what is being accessed. In fact it does not look right at all, something is up with your system. "I:1\Windows" is not what would be expected.

Rebooted no change. SFC reports no abnormalities. I noticed in disk management that disk I was set as active. I changed it to inactive with diskpart and that still did not change anything in resource monitor.

Baffled, but as the system seems to be running fine, I am just going to let it go for now.

I'm baffled to very strange.

@logicearth: Very strange, you would normally only see this on the OS partition. Could be something corrupt, or virus.

I'm pretty stumped. Tempted to give MS support a shot at it.

I could be crazy.
Notice the top graph in the posted picture does not have a drive letter. My understanding is that is a total of disk activity not any particular disk. All the other graphs have drive letters where one can see what each individual disk is doing.
Also notice the different Queue Lengths.

Yeah. The top graph shows total activity. The last graph (if I remember right) shows drive C with lots of activity. The activity panel shows all the files as being on a path that does not exist... I:\1\Windows etc). The graph for drive I shows no activity.

Disk activity not showing up in Resource Monitor?
I've noticed that Windows Media Player is thrashing my hard drive whenever I play videos, so I tried to investigate with Resource Monitor. The "Processes with Disk Activity" pane shows it reading about 4Mb/s, but there's nothing to show for it in the "Disk Activity" pane. Any ideas what's up?
