32GB flash drive from ebayer matt_swarbrick should be destroyed

leave a comment »

Seller matt_swarbrick has listed this flash drive as for parts not working. It is not working because it is a notorious fake capacity flash drive which corrupts files. The seller says:

USB flash drive with 32GB capacity

The flash drive does work and will write and read files to the usb stick. There are comparison errors every now and then which causes some data to corrupt, e.g photos. However if the file is simply rewritten the usb stick it will work.

Hence being sold as for parts or not working.

Enjoy Bidding.

Can not offer refunds or returns.

Payment via paypal only and postage to UK only.

Had this seller tested the drive with h2testw he would have found that it’s real capacity is nowhere near 32GB – which is why there is a problem with it. Anyone who buys one of these might as well flush their money down the nearest toilet.

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.
