We think this 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive sold by woodgm007 is probably counterfeit. If we are right then it will corrupt files after a while, as the capacity will be fake. If we are wrong the buyer will be able to verify the serial number with Kingston. Every genuine one has an individual serial number that can be used to verify genuine drives.

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.
