Dear all,

using Windows 10, I insert a USB stick in a PC, create a Word document and save it onto the USB stick.

Later I edit many times the document at different times and in different days but always working on the USB stick.

Eventually is there any possibility to trace the document's filename, date and time of editing? Even with sophisticated tools?

Regards

William

It is also possible that backup versions of the file stay on said PC, depending upon how the OS and/or Word are configured.

The answer is simply yes. You didn't give any background on the host PC and if it was remotely managed by a top notch IT staff.

If you don't want work to know what you are editing, don't use company PCs. It's that's simple.
