So far the best I've got with this is running in scripted mode,
"advanced,list,recursive,fullpathname". I'm not sure but I'm guessing
the first number is a sector number. At 30+Gb of log file (A glorified
ls -l for every directory) it's not looking like the easiest tool to

My googling has shown that "DiskView" a windows product
(http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896650) will do
what I want. I'm hoping I can find a Linux alternative, but will
resort to that if I have to.

Any other ideas? I'm surprised that it's been so hard to find
something like this.
