The flash drives listed by andyj934 are not genuine 128GB DataTraveler drives.

In the listing the seller states: Brand New Data Traveller Type 400 Series USB Flash Drive

The 400 series is discontinued and was never made in capacities as high as 128GB. These are fake fake fakity fake and will corrupt users’ data. The seller may not be aware of this – though we have a sneaking suspicion that andyj934 does in fact know. We can’t imagine why the seller would not use the Kingston brand name if he though they were genuine, so we suspect that andyj934 is aware they are fakes.

As usual we strongly advise anyone who needs to use flash memory to test with the free program h2testw.

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