XP and USB Devices - is there a system event log?
Posted on 2010-09-15
We have a LAN based system within a WAN using bespoke software with a Sentinel type USB dongle to authenticate the installation.
Today it's missing, presumably someone is going to be disappointed with their newly acquired USB memory stick!
Now I can trace when the software last authenticated a user but as the XP machine that acts as the host "server" is always on will there be a timed record within Windows of when the device was removed? (There are no other USB devices that would be connected or removed duing the same period).
