    Hey there.
    I got this 256GB SD card from a local store here for just 19$
    I knew that something was fishy from the start.
    Only 19 bucks for an SD card?
    But things started getting even weirder
    I plugged it into my PC and by default it was formatted to FAT 32
    That raised suspicion as soon as i saw it. Usually 64gb and up SD cards are formatted to exFAT right off the bat.

    I said to myself let's do a test with h2testw
    Seems like.only 30.4 GB are OK, the rest (210GB) seem to be lost. And H2testw displayed an "This media is likely to be defective" message


    What should I do with this SD card. From the looks of it this seems to be a regular 32GB SD card disguised as a 256GB one
    Will errors occur in the future if I use it?

    that almost sounds like a fake micro sd card - it reminds me of what was talked about in the linus tech tips 'fake chinese sd card scam' video on youtube.
