I bought some DSSI drives on Ebay a while back. Some of them had the
property tax oracle database of a midsize midwest US city in it, but the
interesting ones had Word Perfect for VMS files used by the city's police

It had various police reports for hookers, stolen credit cards and cop-cop
grievances on it. Good thing DSSI drives have the built in firmware erase
function, too bad no one used it until I got the drive.

The seller might have done a VMS INIT/NOERASE on the drive. I looked at
the files with Ultrix and hence did not have the ability to read FILES 11.
