Decluttering the House

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.

Awesome!!!

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 🙂
