I would like to know if there is a way to tell when a USB Drive was plugged and unplugged from your computer. Is this in the event log somewhere? if it is what event id would it be? If it is elsewhere please advise.

The closest I have seen to that capability is what's provided by NirSoft's USBDeview utility:

Run5k,

I have tried using that, however, it only shows current day's activity. I need to go back a few months.

Thanks,

It may be a bit of a challenge to go back a few months, but hopefully someone else within the EE community can chime in accordingly.

While the author's frustration is understandable, it might be nice to have a bit more of an explanation for completely deleting the question than "na."

Déjà vu?  Once again, it might be nice to have a bit more of an explanation for completely deleting the question than "na."

The two comments that I posted previously (http:#a37745683 and http:#a37809576) both seem to have merit.  At the very least, I think they deserve more consideration than an acronym provides.
