    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...

    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.'

    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..

    Lets see, I remember having a 1.7GB Seagate that I had on my Pentium 133. The smallest drives I still own are 4 4.3GB Fujitsu 7200 RPM Ultra Wide SCSI disks that I picked up with my Dual Processor PII 400. Ran them in Raid 0 with my Adaptec 2940. Man, those were smoking fast drives. I'm still using those drives (in Raid 10 now) for an old SQL Server DB.
    Fast but loud. I got rid of mine back in 05?

    EDIT" Ooops Sorry I thought I read seagate

    I had to support an old server machine at my first 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...
