SyQuest made portable hard drive diskettes. I believe they have been out of business going on a couple of decades. At any rate I have some disks and the hardware, but I am unable to find drivers. I would really like to get at the data I have on these disks (Some old pictures). Unfortunately I keep hitting dead ends trying to find drivers. So were can I find drivers for a modern windows OS, or what could be other alternatives?
Your best bet to rescue this data, in my opinion, will be to use the Linux operating system. It supports older hardware extremely well compared to most operating systems.
If you know what you are doing, you can install Linux on a Windows system and select which operating system to use at boot, and there are also live DVDs (which can also be installed on flash drives) which you can use to boot a temporary Linux system.
Once in Linux, you'll read the data and move it to another device - for example, a USB flash drive (separate from the boot flash drive if you used one to boot Linux) - and then read that device when you boot back into Windows.
