The "before" image before restoration starts. These are very rare, I could not find any info about this drive on the web, but it looks to have Shugart 800's in it. We'll see...

..and after an extensive cleaning...not bad. The insides are in great shape, belt is solid.


Took extensive photos of the controller boards for both Drive 0 and Drive 1, so that one can set up a MMFM Intel drive should they not have the original Intel MDS 720 available.
