@Majidkhan Thanks for choosing Support Community.

I am sure, don't have an exact answer for your question however, I would try my best.

McAfee won't be able to define the list because, the devices are categorized by the Operating System. OS categorize the device type according to the device class.

You may refer to the following links which can provide more info on this.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/uwp/api/windows.devices.portable

https://www.techwalla.com/articles/what-are-some-types-of-removable-storage-devices

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/windows-portable-devices

Finally, the device type is not decided by McAfee DLP, the respective OS. Some devices detection may vary between the OSs. Example: A CD/DVD is detected as Camera in a few OS.

Hope, this answers your query.
