This 64GB USB flash drive on ebay Australia is a fake that corrupts files

This USB flash drive listed on ebay Australia by seller apexisx is a very obvious fake which has been programmed to display a false capacity to the operating system.

If you see a flash drive with the Sony Vaio logo you can be certain it is a fake. The Vaio logo is never used for flash drives. Any flash drive of this leather and steel type will be fake as will any flash drive, whatever it’s shape, coming in similar packaging to this. A fake capacity flash drive inevitably corrupts files after a while.

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.
