Solution
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:
%D0%A1%D0%BA%D1%80%D0%B8%D0%BD%D1%88%D0%

So how do you know how many there were before? - nova_Cummings commented on April 19th 20 at 12:33

Yes, in properties of a file or directory, NTFS records the last access time.
You can read more? Where, what, and how to read?
The screw that I have not yet connected to a computer, so as not to inadvertently overwrite previous data - Alexie.Hermiston30 commented on April 19th 20 at 12:35
@Alexie.Hermiston30, Take a flash drive with Linux. Mount the system in RO mode and see access time.

man find


-atime n

True if the file was accessed n days ago. The access time of directories in path is changed by find itself.
-cmin n

File's status was last changed n minutes ago.

-ctime n

True if the file's status was changed n days ago.
