While preparing to move to a new house, I came across two forgotten tape backup mini cartridges from 1996. I know they hold the only backup I made of my original Remote Access BBS, with all my original Star Trek themed ANSI art, DOS/OS2 shareware, and 1000+ users.
I'd love to be able to resurrect this time-capsule, but what hardware device can actually read this?
I think I originally used a 50pin Wide-SCSI external backup, narrower & longer than an external CD-Rom drive (caddy-style). Backup restoration software I'm not worried about as I'm certain I can find something on Linux to suffice, I just need to find the hardware ;)
Here is the mystery cartridge in question:
The cartridge size is:
- 3 3/16"(w) x 2 3/8"(h) x 5/8"(d), or
- 8cm(w) x 6cm(h) x 1.5cm(d)
