We suspect that the 32GB Corsair Voyager flash drives advertised on ebay by seller stuartcyoung could be counterfeit. If they are genuine then the seller has taken a huge risk in listing them in auctions with a 99p start price. If they are counterfeit they will be fake capacity and will corrupt users’ files after a while.

We advise everyone who buys flash memory items to test them with the free program h2testw irrespective of where they were purchased – otherwise you run the risk of data loss and corruption.

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