I tried again on another USB ( I have a few different brands) and this time
it behaves more like you are describing
ie. I am getting microshapes, some of them quite small but which I can
(sometimes) see
Cloning is not reliable - it sometimes reverts to microshapes

adata USB matches your description
LASER USB is what I was describing earlier

Lack of consistency b/w USBs is disconcerting
