The 32GB USB flash drives in this ebay listing from 101praise-store (a Hong Kong based seller) are fake, fake, fakity fake. At this price they could not possibly be anything else. Beware – this USB flash drive is fake capacity (will look like 32GB to the operating system but the real capacity will be 4GB at most) and as a result it corrupts files.

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.
