Hey Everyone!

Does Disk Activity show the activity of my MacBook's internal HD or the activity of all hard drives (I have an external one also).

I have written a pretty CPU intensive python script which renders images into video. It has to open and close a large library of large images, and do it frequently. So, I am use an external hard drive as a scratch disk and not saving any of the rendered files to my MacBook's HD.

The Disk Activity is huge (256-512 KB / sec) and I am worried that my main internal HD is getting written to frequently.

Would this be better to ask in the Applications forum?

I am trying to figure out how to run the python script. I wrote what I want it to say and my mac saved it as a .tex ( I don't know why ) but know I need to save it as a shell and make sure it runs...

any help would be appreciated...
