I had a drive way back in my S100 days that looked
identical to that one. If it's the same thing, then it
is an 18" single-platter SASI drive. My memory is fuzzy, but
I seem to remember that it was around ~15 Mb (Huge for those days!)
The one I had came with a companion rack-mounted SASI controller
that had a flat ribbon umbilical cable to an S100 host adaptor card.
It was a definite trip when you powered it up. It sounded like
a 747 warming up, and you could watch the heads seek
through the plexiglass drive case.
I regret ever having sold it, but at the time a new 5.25" ST-221
with an mfm controller seemed the way to go.
