I'm clearing out stuff at work and home, and have approximately 50-100
DC6150 tapes (150MB) and anywhere from 1 to 4 Archive Viper QIC-150 drives
in probably good working condition (all internal). (we're talking a
whopping 7-14GB of backup here!!! -- I'm trying to go to at least EXB-8200
for my home backups)
These things don't walk on my "FREE" pile in the hall (though 200MB Maxtor
SCSI drives do!?) So is anyone here interested in them for shipping
costs? (i don't know how much that'd be, but DC6150s are pretty heavy when
they're loaded in a box) I'm guessing it might be 30-50 lbs?
Anyone who's truly insane, i have nearly 100 QIC-60 tapes, too, but the
Viper's will only read/not write those tapes.
If not, anyone know of a good disposal path for them? (My University
Recycling group doesn't support magtape)
