Unfortunately, no; last access time is the only thing that can help you and it's not recorded by default on FAT filesystems (if you try with stat, you'll find a semi-fake number, based on last mount I think): θ64° [romano:/media/romano/PEN8G] % stat present.pdf File: ‘present.pdf’ Size: 291235 Blocks: 576 IO Block: 4096 regular file ...
The easiest and most fail safe way will be to save your files in password protected archive files, 'zip' being the most popular archive file format supporting such protection. This format is supported directly in most OS's including Ubuntu and Windows, without installing any other applications. If you want complete drive encryption you'll have to install a ...
It isn't recomend but you can resize current partition and create, make bootable another one using GParted. This flash drive may not work correctly on some systems.

It sounds like you need to get back to basics to work out what power you have/need. I've had similar problems with USB and Raspberry pi. The ...
I've done this with external HDDs using Ubuntu 14.04 and 12.04, I'm assuming that is what you're attempting. I start with Gparted to identify the device, usually its /dev/sdb1 or similar. Then I find the device, there is a drop down in the top right (at the moment) to change between devices. Once you have located your USB device select it. I like to use ...
