Here is the complete message (I hit send on the last one by accident
before I was done writing):
I tested the 10 leftover ones and only 1 had the problem. Hopefully this
statistic is representative of the rest of the group. If you want to be
sure, run this command on a linux machine:
badblocks -w -s -o usbstick.log /dev/sdx
In my machine it would take about 2.5 hours to complete (except for the
bad drive which I stopped after 3.5 hours). You can periodically check the
usbstick.log file and if it is not empty, your drive has a problem!
I apologize if you got a bad one.
