    I tried search and did not find anything...

    So, is there an application we can run that would show hard drive activity? Thanks...

    There's Activity Monitor in Applications/Utilities, or iStat pro.

    Thank you, I guess those will have to do. I was hoping for something like a PC disk drive activity light in the menu bar.

    Activity Light

    Try searching for DiskSpy.. works like a champ, real time flashing disk activity light in status bar.
