  1. Hi!

    I have an old Toshiba T3200 and I was wondering if anyone knows how to get the hdd copied??

    The "laptop" works but it would take so long for it to copy everything to an FDD so I was thinking if there's another way?

    Norton Ghost (I use this one)
    Acronis True Image (most users like this one, images and backup incrementally)
    Acronis Migrate Easy (Just disk clone - quite good!)
    Drive Image (Basically an alternative)
    DriveImage XML (This one is free!)
    MaxBlast (I haven't used this, but it's free)
    Pc-Disk-Clone (Home Edition: Up to 2GB/min, Pro Edition: Up to 7GB/min)

    Imaging: Backs up your entire system, including Windows and data, plus your partition as well. The image can be stored on removable media, such as DVD. And usually takes under an hour (depending on size of image) to fully recover to a blank HardDrive.

    Tha Toshiba T3200 has only a FD drive so it would be hard to get it to a DVD...!
    but anyways...12MHz, 1Mb ram, 40Mb HDD, FDD, no battery, 8.5Kg and so on...

    Hmm

    Unless that's just the laptop connector that you need to pull off (without bending the pins)

    You might want to take a small photo of it (edited and cropped to make it small in kilobytes) and then upload here (or somewhere, with a link to here)

    She's a beaut !! ;)

    I'd say don't touch it, it looks like it would be worth a lot (antique value)

    Not sure, to back up this scssi drive. Maybe floppy again

    Here's how the law works (now I know you know, but this will make it clear for you)

    If you are in an accident, you (and anyone else, ie passengers), are not covered by the personal injury (or death) caused by you. Therefore if you (or your passengers) become a paraplegic or loss of limb, or worse, then you will need to payout, say up to 1million dollars to lets say the passenger. If you don't have the million dollars, then you'll be charged (for murder if a passenger dies) and go to prison for about 20years.

    Now you probably know that (a little) but here's the real scary part.
    If someone smashes into you, they can argue that you were not suppose to be there in the first place, and therefore any damage to the cars (or buildings; power poles you name it) is your fault. And, any personal damage (loss of life etc etc) is also your fault. Again putting you in prison.

    So now your at fault even if it's not your fault!

    So if we weigh it up: Not your fault= 20years in prison= Not worth it

    At all costs. And just in case, you missed the point. At ALL costs, make sure that you have a licence before driving on the road, your life may depend on it.

    Oh and try eBay for that computer thingy :)

    Is the T3200 for sale or do you know where I can get one?

    I have a T3200 with a bad hard drive which I use here at work to control an old MOS AID memory tester. I just pulled the system out of moth balls and the hard drive has seized up. I had Windows version 1.04 on this antique. I need to test some parts and would like to get a working unit. Can anyone sell a working unit to my company or call me to negociate some way to use the PC. Allen Bishop, Office number 719-594-8101

    Hello Allen. I have T3200 but not sure if HDD is working. Computer powers up and "BIOS" sees the HDD (40MB) but when it boots error comes up "Error encountered initializing hard drive”. If you still interested please email me: arkadiusz.kopczyk(at)gmail.com
