Memory stick to memory stick ? Answered

Hello,

If I use a library's computer and connect two of my memory sticks and transfer a set of documents from one stick  to the other stick does any of that information stay on the hard drive or do all the words and numbers just fly through like someone hoovering up alphabetti spaghetti ?

Thanks

Nothing ever goes to the hard drive. The data gets transfered directly, the only place that it exists in the system for the transfer is in the RAM and that is just long enough to verify the read right process.

Unless they are monitoring things like that on their servers. At the vary least there will be a server record indicating that the drives where plugged into the computer. They may even record that data was transferred from one to another. It's not likely they will be trying to record anything that was actually transferred.

Nothing every is on the hard drive. The only trace is in the recent folder and it may just show you were in a flash drive but it was disconnected.
