We would be stunned if the Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives auctioned on ebay Canada by liliblue2010 turned out to be genuine (buyers can verify serial numbers for genuine ones with Kingston) – we think this seller purchase from a fraudulent supplier. If we are right then this USB flash drive is counterfeit and fake capacity. A fake capacity flash drive corrupts files. The seller may be unaware these are likely to be 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.
