Test flash drives from ebayer jane.87rd with h2testw

As the picture in this ebay listing from jane.87rd shows a shiny little capacity sticker on this 16GB USB flash drive we suspect this seller bought from a fraudulent supplier. We have only ever seen these shiny stickers on fake capacity flash drives from China and a fake capacity flash drive corrupts files. Seller jane.87rd may have no idea there is such a thing as fake flash memory and could have purchased these in all innocence.

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.
