The USB flash drive in this ebay listing from drakomodo is a fake that corrupts files. The Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drive is not produced in 265GB capacity. This is a counterfeit produced by fraudsters. It will have a tiny real capacity but will display as 265GB (or close to this) when you look at drive properties. This is due to fraudulent programming of such devices. The seller may not be aware it is fake.

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.
