I work for a college in the IT department and we have to recover data on USB sticks all the time. Suddenly this morning we had an influx of USBs throughout the college where data is just going missing. I have tried looking at the event logs and there doesn't seem to be any errors relating to installations for drivers
or USB devices going askew or anything like that.
The student computers are connected to a domain and are not on roaming profiles. My first assumption was maybe a script conflict but there is nothing in the event log to explain that as a cause.
Usually this would not be a concern, but this is an abnormal influx and was wondering if there is either a script or update or something else that is deleting files off the USB. A typical symptom what students are telling me is that it asks them if they wish to continue or fix the USB drive. Again, usually that tells me that this is a doggy USB drive but to get this can't be the case for nearly every student and teacher in the college.
Please can someone help?
