I might well be wrong, but I don't think there was hardrives in the mid
1970's. If there were I must have been dumb as a stump as we used tape
drives. A good friend of mine was using a wire recorder to save to and
they were popular in the early 1950's . My first Windows computer was
a lap top with Windows 3.1 and that was used and was about 1989 and I
think the 3.5 floppies were pretty new even that late.
