That's an RD54, right? MFM drive? Good luck finding much to talk to it. I'm
a bit surprised you still have a running example! If you have a Q-bus VAX
around with RQDX3, you could hook the drive up there, boot say, NetBSD from
some other media and use 'dd' to clone the drive.
I suppose you could also use Minix on an old PC that had an MFM/RLL
controller in it and get to 'dd' that way... but IIRC, those 8-bit ISA
MFM/RLL disk controllers were always finicky about drives...
Can you back up to TK50 or something? I'm sure those old cartridges aren't
much less dodgy than an RD54 at this point in time...
Just some thoughts.
