WARNING! - Fake capacity flash drives
on 18 February 2014
Note to buyers scammed by this product, please report to Amazon so other buyers are not duped!
Having made multiple test purchases of this product, we can confirm that these flash drives are NOT 64GB. Typically the drives will contain an 8GB chip that is programmed to appear to operating systems as 64GB. The problem emerges once you attempt to write more than around 8GB of data to the drive then read it back, your data will be corrupted/damaged. This data loss is irretrievable meaning unless you have backed up your data to another location - your data will be lost for ever!
We use a Windows tool called H2testw (free to download)which essentially performs many write operations to the target device (flash drive). Once completed the data is read back. This reveals any data corruption issues and more importantly reveals the true likely capacity of the flash memory chip used in the device. We are in the process of collecting further evidence and seek this product's removal from the Amazon marketplace as it is misleading consumers and is unlawful.
