I have an extract of information from the USBstore in the registry.
Does the USB store keep details of all USB connections to the computer?  If not which ones are kept. It is only the last connections or only the last connections to a specific port?
There appear to be several entries for a single device and several last written dates. Some entries are more detailed than others. What can I conclude from this?

What you would like to do?
>Does the USB store keep details of all USB connections to the computer?
yes.
>It is only the last connections or only the last connections to a specific port?
it has all connections.

I thinks that the best answer will be this utility (FREE) that show you all information about connected or conntected recently USB devices:

Sorry. I wasn't clear. I meant does USB store keep a complete history of all connections in circumstances where the devices has been connected and disconnected many times?

If that mean some log file with this:
10.25 09.07.2009 USB Stick 1 inserted in slot 2
10.27 09.07.2009 USB Stick 1 disconnected form slot 2
Then, answer is no.
But you can try GFI Endpoint security has this functionality.
