List open files

On the Mac OS, if you need to know what files are open and by what application and on what disk, you can use the lsof command in Terminal.

Pair that command with grep and you can isolate things like this:

lsof | grep "Snow Leopard"

This will show you what files are open that have “Snow Leopard” in the name.
