Windows 7: Copy files from PC - Flash drive on LAN - 2 issues

Copy files from PC - Flash drive on LAN - 2 issues


I've recently copied some files from a local area network computer to a memory stick drive. But the problem is that I couldn't find all the files on the stick drive. How could that be possible?

And one more thing, could anyone from the network (let's say the main PC) see that I have been copied those files, which were shared on the network?

Thank you!

Maybe your memory stick got filled up and couldn't hold any more files. Or maybe there were restrictions on some of these files, so that they couldn't be copied to a flash drive.

If the powers that be want to see who is copying what, they can. But probably most companies don't monitor things that closely, unless either the information is really sensitive or the company is really paranoid.
