They're darn hard to find. The real shock was when I found one in a brand new computer room that I *KNOW* for a fact doesn't have any RRD40 drives in it, and neither did the computer room that the equipment was moved from, or the one before that one! I still wonder where on earth that caddie came from.

A year or so ago I managed to find a bare drive from the original manufacturer, still in the box, and with a caddie! Now that was a shock!

Those two cases are in addition to the RRD40 and Caddie that I bought from Jim Willing a few years ago.
