I bought a flashdrive on Ebay. When I right-click on the flash drive and select Properties- it says it's 128GB.
I don't know who makes the flash drive as there is nothing on it nor was there anything on the package.
Some folks on Ebay say the guy is sending 8 GB flashdrives stating it's a 128 GB flashdrive.
They claim it's a 128GB but will only hold 8 GB's.
Is there some other way I can check my flash drive to see how large it really is?
As always...thanks for your highly efficient and intelligent help!

Below is a link to a site with what looks like are images and info on all 128gb flash drives available now.
I suspect since the drive you purchased has no identification on it is not what you thought you bought. Price would be another clue.

WOW- You are a genius! I contacted ebay as there are a lot of complaints about him.
