This is my first post and am not sure I am in the right area but figured if not someone can guide me. Here is my question, is it possible to trace files that have been copied to a thumb drive from a computer system operating on a server? Thank you

Can you explain what you mean by "trace" files? What do you want to do, or can you provide an example?
Thanks,
John

Yes, example if I copy a file from the hard drive to a thumb drive is there a way to see that the file has been copied?

You can use Explorer to view the thumb drive files and file sizes, which should give you an indication that the file was copied. If it is important, then you can (and probably should) open it from there.
