Where would you find information on what files where sent over the internet on windows XP pro. If the file in question was on a external HD would there be a log of it in the usbstor or setupapi logs, and what other information would be in that log.

There are a lot of parts to this question:

On the sending or receiving machine? Do you know how they were sent? E-Mail? FTP? RDP? Some other way? Are there machines or appliances in the middle? Firewall? Proxy server? Some other device? Is/are the machine(s) on a domain?

There would typically be a "log" (or a Registry entry) of the device being connected if it was a USB device. There would not be an entry regarding the file.

The computer in question supposedly sent a video file or images to a government agency (not knowing of course). It was from a residence with no domain, and was on a non-secured wireless network.

I think the file was sent via FTP, but I have to check to be positive. The government in the search did not find any external HD nor the images or videos they are charging for. They also claim that the images they are charging for are not even on the subjects computer. I am just wondering what foot print was left behind on the subjects computer and where to look for them.

Due to the Adam Walsh Act I have very limited access to the Computer in question. I also have no access to the computer which supposedly received them.
