Could be something for BM to have a crack at once he's finished travelling the world as long as he didn't throw out all of the gubbed computer bits he has gathered over the years...  rubschin:

I'll leave Apey and Nick to make the floppy jokes at BM's expense...  angel1

I had enough old drives to do all that...  noooo:

I must have had 60+ hard drives from various years with different operating systems and data on them - some from customers and many of my own...

When we rented the house I stripped them all down, removed the magnets and platters (good beer mats) and junked all the works...

BTW the first HDD I sold was a Hewlett Packard 5Mb drive which was formatted as 4 x 1.2Mb drives so that the operating system could recognise it...  lol:
