RPC J233 hard disk image

Post by opsy » Sun Oct 20, 2019 3:27 pm

Hi All,
I've had a RPC J233 from new.
Battery damage has killed sound from the speakers but available from the phono, so reasonable condition.
When I got it, I started to configure !Browse/Internet and realised that I should taken a copy of the hard disk first.
So I've got a copy of a J233 hard disk, almost as new but with minor !Browse/Internet configuration changes, is this any use to anybody?
Cheers Keith

Oh, yes please! I believe the J233 was the last revision of the RiscPC actually sold by Acorn? It would be great to recreate the HDD under emulation and have a play with it.

OK, I'll see if I can compress it and then come back to you regarding transfer to this forum or you.
Cheers Keith

Compressed from 82M down to 64M using SparkFS.
What's the best way of making this available?
Is it too large to be posted on here?
Is DropBox an option?
Cheers Keith

This is brilliant, many thanks for compressing and uploading to dropbox!

I've downloaded to experiment with this under emulation :D

Does anyone have a copy of this they would be willing to repost here??

On a similar note is there a repository for hard disc images online? I have a couple of DD copies of Arc disks I'd be happy to post there
