We can’t be sure as the picture in this listing by pjm2203 isn’t sharp enough but there is something about the back of the packaging that makes us suspect that this 8GB DataTraveler 101 flash drive could be counterfeit. If it is counterfeit it will also be fake capacity, causing data loss and corruption.

As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

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