Basically, I don't care about fragmentation on the disk as a whole, I'm just curious about one file in particular... in my case, a SQL database and transaction log file. I'm looking for something that will provide very basic statistics - number of fragments, average fragement size, etc. I'm NOT looking for fragmentation statistics of the SQL data / indexes - I already know how to get that.

Yes - contig.exe can do this (you want the -a flag)
