George W. Bush would be more accurate. That 10.1GB drive is from around 2000.

Yeah, the non-English speaking world uses either a period or a space rather than a comma to separate large numbers. 

So 10,110 MB would be written as either 10 110 MB or 10.110 MB (as it is here).

Unless you're in Japan, in which case, they don't separate numbers at all.  Which is insanity on really large numbers.  Quick, what's 534767386178 at a glance?  Who the #$!@ knows, right?  You've gotta count out the digits.  Of course, they separate numbers differently here anyway, so even if they DID use commas/periods/spaces, they'd be in different locations and I'd be just as screwed, I guess.  Rather than splitting everything into hundreds, thousands, millions, billions, etc., they separate by hundred, thousand, ten thousand, one hundred million, and I don't even know what comes after that because it isn't anything useful in normal life.

But I digress.:)

The first couple of computers my family owned didn't have an HDD, but the 3rd was a 486 33MhZ PC with 8MB RAM and a whopping 250MB HDD.  That's enough storage to hold...one magazine.  So long as it isn't an especially long magazine, that is.

But yeah, if the drive you found HAD been a 10 MB Seagate, it would have hailed from 1983, WAY before most people owned computers with HDDs (the first ever HDD was 5MB in 1980).

Meanwhile, I fill an 8TB drive every 4 months or so.:lol:

With the label suggesting to boot from Windows and use a DiscWizard CD-ROM, it's certainly not a 10 Mb disk ! :P
