For the new year, I’ve been on a mission to declutter the house and found an old hard drive from 1995 in box of old computer parts. Curious to see if it contained anything fun from the ’90s, I plugged the hard drive in a IDE enclosure and gave it a go.
Unfortunately, the hard drive started making cranking noises and failed to install. Since the drive is failing, I figure I’d open it up and see how it works before tossing it in the trash.
After opening the drive. the hard drive installed correctly and the data was accessible.
I was hoping to find old AOL emails and pictures from my teenage years, but alas, the drive was wiped.
Oh well. At least I got it to work 🙂
