27 Year Old Atari Archive Discovered!
« on: August 31, 2016, 05:30:23 PM »
Christian Zietz tried to restore of a 27 year old SyQuest drive taken from Atari's HQ.  Amazingly he was able to restore the files!  I love this kind of digital archeology.  Fantastic read here:

I wish somebody would find something similar for Amiga items.


Apologies if someone else posted the story before me.

Enjoy!

Interesting read. Thanks for sharing.

On the Amiga side, the "Amiga OS 3.1 source code" that was circulating a while ago actually appears to be a partial dump of one of Commodore's servers. I say partial because some of the files refer to paths that don't exist in the archive. Still, there's some really interesting stuff in there. I hope a complete backup surfaces someday...
