    Hi !

    For my birthday, i got a little funny gift. A Squirtle USB Flash Drive. I was looking for a nice USB Flash Drive in order to put all my Shiny Pokemon files stuff. So really nice.

    But after, it's the kind of stuff you can find on aliexpress, or here :
    http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_odk...0.Xpokemon+usb.TRS0&_nkw=pokemon+usb&_sacat=0

    So i'm not sure of the quality. I just would like to be SURE that I can use it without any problem (fearing a bad capacity or worst before putting it for the first time)

    Any help ? How to be sure that it's working ?

    Thanks

    Format it, fill it to capacity, then copy everything back. If it's bad it'll fail or the files will be corrupted.

    Or use software to test for you, such as h2testw.

    Best is to use h2testw.

    Manually filling it to capacity and copying things back takes to much time.
