Seconded. Especially those 8" Fujitsus. Once upon a time the Unix-AG had
a Sequent Symetry Ssomething with 8 x 80386DX20 CPUs... It used 8"
Fujitsu SMD disks of 600-something MB capacity. The former operator of
that machine at the local university instructed us to low level format
the disks once every year. They simply loose data over time.
