The flash drives sold on ebay by UK member crazypricedeals are very cheap if they are genuine. The 64GB Sandisk Ultra Backup costs around £165 direct from Sandisk. We would be very surprised if this seller is managing to sell these at not much more than half this price as profit margins on flash memory are not huge. Buyers are strongly advised to check serial numbers with Sandisk.

If the packaging has been thrown away and you don’t have the serial number a test with the free program h2testw will reveal whether or not the drive has the capacity shown in the operating system.

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.
