These DT101/128GB usb flash drives are fakes:
The highest capacity Kingston Technologies made for a DT101 usb flash drive is only 16GB. Any other size offered by wholesalers, retailers or internet sites is a fake with an upgraded capacity that does not have a 128GB flash memory chip inside. Upgraded means the usb flash drive has been digitally manipulated to lie about it’s true size to operating system. This means customers will lose their files as soon as they go beyond the real size of the flash memory chip.
