        There is an indirect way to detect rc5desh's operations.  Attempt 
     to ScanDisk the drive that is being used for checkpointing and(/or) 
     buff* files.  The constant fiddling with the files will (except for 
     extremely small drives) prevent the ScanDisk operation from 
        MS's hoopla and handwaving is that Disk Utilities can lock the 
     entire disk filesystem (thus detecting changes to the disk).  Is 
     some way to alter the hidden clients to detect this locking of the 
     filesystem and avoid writing to the disk during that time?
