UDO & UDO2 Disks Conversions

UDO and UDO2 optical disc storage media cartridges have 30GB and 60GB capacities and are branded Plasmon, HP, Verbatim, IBM, Xerox, Maxoptix, Alliance Storage Technologies (ASTI), Mitsubishi Sony. UDO disks can be Rewritable or WORM Write Once media. The WORM devices use their own proprietary filesystem which we can usually decode to extract your files to say a Windows Formatted USB hard drive. The disks are used in document archive systems like Pegasus InveStore v4.5 and v5.0. There was a plan in early stages to develop a 120GB disk, however we have not yet come across such media, and it is likely that the fall in price of hard disk drives has made this obsolete. The optical discs are and used in computer archival backup systems such as COLD storage, whereby the bulk of document storage is transferred to Optical disks for long term archiving, so freeing up hard disk drive storage for more recent work. Cartridge Size 5.25 inch or 90mm.
