This flash drive listed on ebay by joyia55 is fake capacity and corrupts files. These are manufactured by fraudsters in China. This seller obviously bought from a fraudulent supplier. How do we know it is fake? Two very obvious pointers:

  1. There is no such thing as a Sony Vaio flash drive – invented by fraudsters!
  2. The leather and steel type of flash drive has never been found to have a real capacity over 4GB.

Never buy a flash drive if either it is the leather and steel type or shows the Sony Vaio name – you are certain to get a fake that trashes your files after a while.

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.
