Monitoring File System Activity on Mac OS X

fs_usage is very helpful tool when you just want to know what some process is doing with your file system.

fs_usage -w -f filesys

-w for wide, aka more info.

-f filesys for just filesystem info.

is the process you want to watch.

The man page is nice and straight forward too.
