I bought a 256GB USB stick for only $5 on eBay.
What could possible overwrite your sense of "hey wait a minute" as a technology person would make you think you could buy a 256GB flash drive for $5
I was asked many times already. However, I went ahead and ordered the item anyway and after shipping I really received it.
I tested the drive to see if this was too good to be true by copying 256GB of data back and forth - I could then see if this USB drive really has the 256GB it should have.
Of course, it did not. After writing more than 4GB of data I got this message:
I know I've been fooled (deliberately), but how was this done?
How can I test the drive and see what they really sold me and how they pumped it up to 256GB?
