Question

nirsoft usb information

I have been trying to find out information on a few USBs plugged into a computer. I can see it shows the date it was pulled out, and the name of the device. I also see a serial number. Is that serial number the serial number of the device or is it something assigned by the computer?

Is there any way I can find out the storage size of the USB put into the computer? And if that serial number is not the real one, is there a way I could get it using nirsoft?

Or if anyone knows of any other applications that can give information to me on USB devices that were plugged in, that would be great too. Thanks!

In reply to: Is this in the past? If so

I saw info about auditing when I was researching this, I am definitely going to use that for the future. I've made my peace with the fact that there is no way I'm going to know if or what information was put onto the USBs, but if I can at least find out exactly what kind of USB it was I can figure out if they were stolen or something. At this point I'm just trying to find out what kind of USBs they were.

So far

What Windows logs is pretty sparse. In some offices they install event monitoring and more.
