H2testw Test for Fake Flash Drives

Test and Detect Fake or Counterfeit USB Flash Drives. H2testw is a free tool that can be used to check flash memory devices for errors. It works by filling the chosen target with test data and then reads this data back to verify it. If the thumb drive has been programmed to display the incorrect size, or if the thumb drive is damaged and no longer working properly, there will be data corruption. However, if the thumb drive is good, the test will finish without any errors. This makes for a great tool to use to test if your flash drive is counterfeit and reporting the wrong capacity. Or if the device has already seen a lot of use, to detect if it is failing.

The software supports both the English and Deutsch languages.

Note: To avoid the risk of losing data, you should always copy your data elsewhere before performing a test on the USB Drive.
