I downloaded and ran h2testw.exe to test the flashdrive. h2testw.exe reported that only 384 MB was writable, and the rest of the sectors were corrupted (likely they were just not there, and the drive was counterfeit). I went to the store and bought one, which tested OK. At that point everything was fine and I did not see the error.


I am seeing exactly the same behaviour with a stock STEC 16 GB - I can't partition it using Linux or Dell XP CD - is there any chance of reviving the SSD?
