Scsi Mirror Syquest 44Mb


Many thanks to a friend for the Apple SCSI terminator.

Hints: Macintosh Plus can boot from Cartridges.

from Wikipedia:

SyQuest Technology, Inc., now known as SYQT, Inc., was an early entrant into the removable hard disk market for personal computers. The company was started in 1982 by Syed Iftikar; it was named partially after himself because of a company meeting wherein it was decided that “SyQuest” ought to be a shortened name for “Sy’s Quest”.

Its earliest products were 3.9″ (100mm) removable hard drives, and 3.9″ (100mm) ruggedized hard drives for IBM XT compatibles and military applications. Some of their early fixed drives appear to be rebranded Seagate drives, especially when one compares the drive lists on this data recovery site with this product table. For many years SyQuest held the market, particularly as a method of transferring large desktop publisher documents to printers.

SyQuest aim their products to give personal computer users “endless” hard drive space for data-intensive applications like desktop publishing, Internet information management, pre-press, multimedia, audio, video, digital photography, fast backup, data exchange, archiving, confidential data security and easy portability for the road.
