The leather and steel type flash drives listed on ebay Australia by infxus are neither high quality nor do they have a true capacity of 64GB. This ebayer undoubtedly bought these famous fakes from a fraudulent wholesale outlet, probably in China.

These flash drives use small capacity (usually no more than 2GB) inferior quality flash chips that are very prone to failure – even when sold as the genuine capacity. When they are sold at high capacities such as 64gb these flash drives have been programmed to fool the operating system – so when you look at the drive properties you see what you would expect – in this case 64GB. This is not the truth. These will corrupt files.

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 your fake if testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.
