Computer Way Back – Amazing what we used to call fast !

Clearing hardrives for a customer on some old computers.

1st computer – An old Micron PC, Windows 98, Pentium II – 333Mhz, 1MB Ram, 6GB harddrive ! Secure harddisk wipe time – 1.5 hours!

To put the above in perspective, most peoples current computers Ram is between 2-16GB compared to the above harddrive size of 6GB. Todays 600GB harddrive is 1,000 times larger that the harddrive in this oldie computer !
