leave a comment »

Estonian ebay seller mazafaka1984 is perfectly open about the flash drive sold in this listing being fake capacity. The seller says:

Notice:this is upgraded version from 4gb to 128gb, plug the pen stick into the computer ,and it shows 128gb, but real total capacity is 4gb

Of course this means that if anyone uses this flash drive then after a while it corrupts files due to the fake capacity.

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.
