OK, that's a few bytes, but more write throughput could increase the chances
of a detectable error.
By nature, Scandisk can't tell you about the file content integrity, instead
only about organization structures of the disk, directories and FAT. So I
think it would be good to provoke such kind of traffic, create and remove
files/dirs.
