RetroDigital has recently (and very fortuitously might I add) acquired a Quantum “Bigfoot” TX 5.25″ form-factor hard drive.
While this might not seem a particularly special acquisition to most, it is for us. The reason being is that this was the first model of hard drive that we had purchased as an upgrade for one of our personally-owned systems.
We would suppose there was not a huge number of these drives produced, as this is only the second one that we have seen in a number of years.
While the drive is “posed” for a photo-op, it is not simply “being admired.” This drive is still fully functional and is “earning it’s keep”, as it is now installed in a Packard-Bell Pack-Mate 7836 system.
