Hi Folks!

I've managed to get a pair of early Apple HD20 hard drives that connect via floppy port. Both seem to be working ok. but I'm a little nervous about moving them. Does anybody know if the heads are autoparking or if there is a program I have to run before moving the drives?

Cheers,
Dave

I used to tote my machine and ext HDD around all the time.. I'd do a proper shutdown but I'd never park the drives.. I only ever did that on the 386 I had with an MFM drive.. ?
