    Fake memory on flash drives


    I have recently bought a 32gb micro sd card from eBay and was wondering if there is some kind of check I can do to make sure it has correct memory on it, I have heard that some of the sd, hard drives and flash cards from eBay are being faked and what looks like a 500gb hard drive people find out later that its just a 1gb flash drive inside with some kind of modded files in it that makes it look like a 500gb drive, upon transferring files they just delete anything past 1gb. So is there a way to check?

    Yeah - don't buy untested stuff off ebay.
    Otherwise you'll just need to format it and use it to see what's there.

    if you don't have any knowledge about the subject maybe you shouldn't attempt to "help".
