This thread brings back lots of memories. I also remember when my Dad's friend spent hundreds to get a 1GB hdd. I was amazed that they existed, I could just imagine all of the games you could fit on that...Desktop | i7 7700k | 16GB HyperX | Asus Strix 1080 | 512GB 950 Pro | U3415W |

Back to my original search. I'm looking for miniature HDDs that have died. I need them for a project. I have many 3.5", but they are too large. SSDs won't work. Any leads to PC surplus shops that may have some will be appreciated.

Has someone mentioned the DEC RK05? "It stored approximately 2.5 MB on a 14", single-platter IBM-2315-style front-loading removable disk cartridge."
Not a PC drive and not "Winchester" technology either. It was a removable platter. I used them 'back in the day.'Intel Core I7-4770K w/ 16 GB RAM

MY first PC had a...
Wait what is the data capacity of a 60 minute audio cassette? Bear in mind the system had only a 4K RAM so I guess less than that?
Ahh... thanks to wiki..

I had to support an old server machine at my first job...an IBM PS/2 386 type 8580-071 with twin 44 mb seagate (MFM? RLL?) ST-506 drives. When it was retired in 1997, I bought it and brought it home. I ended up giving it to a friend of mine just so he could log onto BBS systems. Ah, the good old days...
