We suspect that this 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive sold by US ebay member arsfom is likely to be counterfeit and fake capacity.

The buyer should check whether the serial number can be verified by Kingston.

If Kingston are unable to verify the serial number then it will be counterfeit and and fake capacity.

Counterfeits will trash files after a while.

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.
