Check Whether Your Flash drive Or Memory Card Is Original Or Fake

Some of you might have fallen victim to buying fake flash drives or memory cards without realizing it. Actually, this happened to a couple of my friends. One of them bought a flash drive or pendrive and after using it for a week, the 16GB flash drive has changed to 0byte. And the other who bought a flash drive which claimed to be 8GB and after reaching home, he realized that the 8GB flash drive which he bought has turned into 0byte. This can be very annoying especially when you needed to do something urgently with the flash drive. In this tutorial, we will be using an amazing and a safe software to test whether your flash drive is fake or original. This software is called H2testw. H2testw is a simple and easy to use program designed to enable you to test USB flash drives for various kinds of errors. It can also be used for any other storage media like memory cards, internal and external hard drives. Now, let's get started and see how the process is carried out.

1. Search on google to download h2testw.zip file or you can get it here.
2. Extract it to get the exe file.
3. Open or run it, click on select target and choose your flash drive or memory card (make sure that the flash drive is formatted before you start the process ).



4. Now you have to click on Write + Verify and wait for a while, for the process  to complete as shown below.



5. After completion it will show you a message "test finished without errors" as shown below.


It means your flash drive or memory card is original and it has no problem. But if it finds errors, then your flash drive or memory card is fake and it has a problem. 
Note, make sure you format the flash drive to get rid of the files on it after the testing process.

Hope you find the tutorial very useful.
