You could look for hidden files on the first USB drive.  (Use an option
'Show Hidden Files' in the main menu in Thunar.)

By the way, when WRITING to a USB stick in Windows, you also have to click
'Safely Remove Hardware' before removing the USB drive, else you lose the
changes you made - underneath, both Windows and Linux do the same thing -
but Windows does not use the word 'unmount'.
