Complete info on the USBs you use

USBDeview is a freeware utility tool developed by NirSoft, a website operated by one man. It gives you information about all the USB devices you use—not only the ones that you’re currently using, but also all those you’ve connected to your computer at some point in the past. This is a lightweight program that is fully capable of displaying extended information related to USB devices.  

What is USBDeview?

USBDeview is a Windows application that allows you to see a list of all the USB devices connected to your PC. The information displayed not only includes the device name, but also a short description, device type, and serial number of the flash drive you're currently utilizing or have used before. Other details that can be seen in the list are about when the device was last used, whether it is currently plugged in, and whether it can be safely removed or not.

The ‘File’ menu in this handy software solution also contains options to interact with USB devices, like enabling or disabling them and disconnecting all of them at the same time. USBDeview is fully customizable, meaning you can choose which columns you want to see on the interface. You can also export the data, but only to HTML, though.

Portability and further operations

This desktop software requires no installation for it to be used, you can opt to save it either on any part of the hard disk, USB flash disk, or similar storage unit. You will be able to effortlessly launch it, simply by clicking the executable file. Your activities will never be saved or shared while using this app. Thus, your anonymity is maintained and your identity privacy is protected.

It is important to note as well that this program doesn't update the Windows registry and Start menu with fresh keys. Aside from the functions mentioned, it also offers an autoplay feature that you can freely activate anytime. If you are dealing with a huge amount of data, on the other hand, you can utilize its search function. To ensure great performance in terms of reading and writing, you can opt to run speed tests as much as you like.   

Know it all

With USBDeview you’ll have all the information you need about all the USB devices you use or have used at any point. This way, you can also have better supervision of all the USB flash drives you possibly have. It will help you prevent any confusion in the future as well as aid you to better organize your file devices.
