I've had it powered up and spinning and it sounds exactly like I remembered it? No bad sounds etc. It's not been stood idle for 20 years, maybe the last 2 or 3. It's choking me up at the thought of getting rid of it - it was my first system!..
Even if I can't recover the files, if I can get a working drive will be a bonus, I can't believe what they're listed for on ebay!
