Beware USB flash drives from huxiaohuan065 on ebay: test with h2testw

leave a comment »

The USB flash drive in this ebay listing from huxiaohuan065 is notorious – it has been sold on ebay in every fake capacity imagininable for several years. It is a favourite model with fake flash fraudsters as it is easy to program.

The actual capacity of the flash memory in these is a lot less than advertised though the operating system indicates the advertised capacity when you plug one into the computer. This is due to the fraudulent programming of the control chip. Once the real capacity has been filled the flash drive 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.
