is there a way to find when a 'mass storage device' was attached to my machine

does windows have any location where they store logs for devices plugged into the machiine so i can get information like when or even what it did...?

yes, the easiest way to do this is to right click my computer go to manage, event viewer and check in the system logs.

The event logs won't show when you plugged in a usb drive but will still give you loads of information(for windows xp)

You may need to turn on auditing for this to give more info in the event logs.


I hope this helps !
