Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I need to know how some files have been saved in my computer 7 months ago. I know that they have been copied from a USB peripheral and i know the exact date and time they were saved, i want to discover the model or some information about that usb key.

I know that ubuntu archives logs, unfortunately older logs archives are maximum 6 months older and i can't find any older log. (i checked kern.log.gz and syslog.gz )

Could you suggest a different way to check model or brand of the usb key from were files where copied?

system is Lubuntu (very similar to ubuntu)
