    Find a USB device on Network?

    Hello Folks, Would anyone know how to find a usb device on the network?

    Im pretty sure I have lost my USB flash drive in school and I wanted to see if I could find out if a student has picked it up and plugged it into the network .... any thoughts? Server 2k3 and xp clients.

    Thanks

    The tool I think you need is possibly Device Lock Plug in and Play auditor.
    Its free and really useful but I have not used it in a while tbh.
    DeviceLock Plug and Play Auditor - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

    Hi guys - long time no speak good to see eduGeek going from strngth to strength.

    If you wanted to find out which usb devices have been plugged into a computer download usbdeview.exe from nirsoft

    It will:

    List all devices (active/non-active/mass stor/HID etc)
    Allow you to delete old reg entries
    Run app on usb insert
    and most importantly ... it can do this remotley

    What you *could* do is run this remotley across all nodes, pipe out to csv or what evs you like and search for your usb serial number.

    "What is my usb serial number" i hear you ask -- run the same app on your local (day to day) machine where the usb would have been and see if you can remeber your volume tag etc.


    HTH mate
