Today I finally got around to disassembling that hard drive in my room.
It was a Maxtor 8 Gb, still uses parallel ports.
Here's what it looks like after I opened:
It seems they have capacity for 4 disks, but only had 3 installed.
A video here demostrating its working condition.
Then there's more photos:
All that's left after disassembling is the milled aluminum casing - which is rather a work of art.
This is rather neat - I opened one of these before, but didn't take apart the disks as well. It's hard to find unique screwdrivers that'll allow you to turn these screws.
