It seems fairly clear that ebay seller tomtom84red (registered in Australia) bought these 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives from a fraudulent wholesale outlet selling counterfeit and fake capacity flash drives. A fake capacity USB flash drive inevitably corrupts files. The seller may not realise these are fakes.

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.
