Axel is probably right, but either way the 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive in this listing from poorab771 is, like those sold by fomahip382 (who we posted about on May 2nd), counterfeit, fake capacity and 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.
