Is it possible to know whether the fact of reading data from external HDD?
Is the external HDD 2.5", Seagate 1TB (Backup Plus Portable Drive).
At some point in time left screw unattended and someone could connect to and read data from there.
Tell me, is it possible to determine whether the disk is connected to my computer and read out the data?
Talking about normal users, not hackers.
Yes, S. M. A. R. T. parameter to 0C, the drive counts the number of on/off cycles, if you know how much it was at the time when he left, looking again, you will be able to tell that the drive is connected to your computer:

Yes, in properties of a file or directory, NTFS records the last access time.
