We suspect that ebay seller katiej041204 bought the 32GB swivel type flash drives in this ebay listing (and the 16GB ones) from a fraudulent supplier. If we are right then they are fake capacity USB flash drives and fake capacity flash memory corrupts files. We have come across fakes in this packaging before so we suspect this is another of the packages used for fakes – also we noticed there seems to be one of the little shiny capacity stickers so common with generic fakes.

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.
