Hi all. A friend of mine recently came across a bundle of Twiggy disks that were owned by an Apple engineer in 1981-83. The disks appear to have been used and erased several times, and most recently used as backup disks. The interesting part is that these disks came with printouts: a list of files contained in the backups. There are several eyebrow-raising files listed here, including Apple UniFile and DuoFile disk drivers, files in the Apple ///'s SOS file format, and more. This gentleman and I are both interested in ensuring that these disks are imaged and archived, so any thoughts on what these disks contain would be greatly appreciated.

Hopefully these disks contain items that were either lost or unknown to the community until now. Pretty neat find in any case  8)

Intriguing for sure... if you don't already have a Lisa 1 lined up to archive them, I expect we can find a volunteer to help... approximately where are you located?

I do have a Lisa 1, but no direct experience archiving Twiggies. This gentleman is located in the San Francisco Bay Area. Do we have anyone up there in Silicon Valley that would be able to help?

We don't have many locations listed in the "Twiggy Archiving - List of Lisas w. Twiggy drives, by location" thread yet... more volunteers needed, please!

Very happy to help, but unless the owner travels to London with some frequency, there are likely to be much more convenient options!

If you have a Lisa 1, you should be able to archive them with Basic Lisa Utility!
