Big foot

In one of my previous posts, I’ve mentioned about Quantum Big Foot hard disk that we used 10 years ago. Today when I cleaned up my my old stuffs, I’ve found my old Quantum Big Foot hard disk (together with some old PC peripherals). So I snapped this photo below, to show you the Quantum Big Foot hard disk, in case you have never seen one before.

Quantum Big Foot hard disk and Maxtor hard disk

At left, Quantum Big Foot hard disk, 2.1GB, manufactured in 1997, at right, Maxtor hard disk, 20 GB, manufactured in 2002 (this is the standard size of today’s hard disks).

ps. Quantum sold their hard disk technology to Maxtor at 2000, but at 2006 Maxtor was acquired by Seagate.
