Sleek looking box, I think the last/only Fujitsu HDD I had also sounded like an angle grinder, so maybe their default noise.

Happy that I could backup the contents before it inevitably goes to hardware heaven =)
Ah, yeah with thinking about it, I can't remember seeing a Fujitsu 3.5 IDE bigger than 300MB so maybe their HDD venture died off early 90s... I'm not sure their PC arm went on much longer, they were in bed with Siemens Nixdorf through mid to late 90s. It's possible your machine will have similarities with the Scenic line of theirs.
