Is there anybody local to me in Edison New Jersey, that may have a way of reading a
3M DC 600a data cartridge,
from a back up in 12/1991 ?

It is a back up of a Maxum 286 computer
I believe it was running DOS and Windows.

I don’t know what program was used to back it up.
I believe it an external drive was used to back it up.
Unfortunately the 286 motherboard is completely corroded and I do not have the original tape drive.
If anybody can help out, I’m just curious to know what’s on the tape and maybe we can put the contents onto a USB drive.

I’d be willing to do this at some point when we have a workshop here in New Jersey.
