Do USB drives report statistics, like SSDs and HDDs do? Is there a way to see what is the total amount of data read, the total amount of date written, the remaining health, and the total amount of time the drive has been in use?

To make it more clear: Is there a program that can show you the stats of your USB drive in the same way CrystalDisk can show you the stats of your SSD?

Presumably you have one or more of these flash drives?

What has your research shown so far?
