Don't touch it.

i wonder if hp would be interested.

Probably know about it but to hard to do anything about it. Besides its probably genuine but hacked to read 2TB so HP are getting a sale anyway.

I have a couple of 1Tb flash drives. They work well and were way cheaper than most smaller ones on here.

They say 1TB but are they, have you got more than say 500GB stored on them and if so can you get it off or is it just saying its there.

Would you want to risk losing all your data by putting it on a hacked flashdrive? There is a reason you can't buy them in electronics store - they DON'T exist for real.

Reported three of his auctions by community watch.

Try copying more than 16gb to it, read it back, and see what happens.

Genuine 1tb flash drives are worth $800+. The rest are hacked.

You can use rmprep and it writes markers to each block to check capacity.

Love the earthquake proof in description, coming from Christchurch it does it for me. Bit of a giveaway.
