Hi All,

Is there any script we can keep track  if a user try to copy any file or data from our environment desktops to his USB.

Here is an article that helps https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/mspfe/2013/08/26/auditing-file-access-on-file-servers/

You need to turn on Auditing GPO.

If you need to set up audit SACLs on a large number of files, Global Object Access Auditing lets you create System Access Control Lists (SACL) for the entire computer, based on file and registry. See http://blogs.technet.com/b/askds/archive/2011/03/10/global-object-access-auditing-is-magic.aspx 

Unless you have the time to set it up, it's easier to go 3rd party, e.g.
- LepideAuditor: http://www.fileaccessauditing.com/
- Netwrix Auditor for Windows File Servers: https://www.netwrix.com/file_server_auditing.html
