    Why? What do you hope to accomplish?

    It ain't going to last forever. This is an interesting machine imo. I'd like to keep/get it running and keep it that way. I don't particularly like mysteries either.

    The more pertinent question is how I can extract the OS from this hard drive. Do you think the FBI will assist me? They have all the cool toys no? Seriously someone should do a write up on the care and feeding of a crotchety old hard disk. How to image it, etc.

    Search the forum; there's a ST506 reader/emulator available. Or just copy the software to floppies.

    I know someone that has a nearly complete one of these, I believe with a bunch of accessories too. He's in southern New Hampshire and I'm helping him clean out and sell 40+ years worth of accumulated "junk". I think his is just missing the front piece, and the system is most likely going to be for sale.
