I wanted to know if there is a way to see if a user downloaded confidential information onto his flash drive before he left the firm. Is there such a software or a way to find out.

Yes but most of it needs installing before the event.  There are some system tools that Windows uses that may help but not give you the detail but these are only available on Vista or later, not XP.

It is kind of device control and data loss prevention technology. Can check out Devicelock which you can centrally control, log, shadow-copy, and analyze end-user access to and data transfers through all types of peripheral devices and ports, as well as network communications on corporate computers.
