corrupted twice. data gone. 10/04/2013
This review is from: Transcend JetFlash 780 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model TS8GJF780
Fast, decent construction, USB 2.0 and 3 compatibility
Worked fine for a month. then windows 7 said no partition found. Tried on 2nd computer with XP also. Was unable to repair or locate partition using advanced partitioning tools (testdisk via boot CD, HxD, UBCDWin tools, etc). HxD Hexidecimal editor shows random data on the drive with no partition table in sector 0 (that's the problem). It doesn't even have the 55AA marker (end of sector 0) shown for those familiar with partition table repairs.
I formatted and started over. Worked fine for a week, and it corrupted again. No partition found. The drive has a problem and is not useable.
This drive has a problem and is not useable. Other flash drives work fine for years. For example my old Patriot XT 16GB survived the washer and dryer and having the USB connector bent over a bit. This one is new, it just sat on the shelf at work and quit after using it 4 times.
