To celebrate its 30th anniversary, Seagate put together a museum of hard drives reaching back to the company's inception. We were privileged to visit briefly, so we thought we'd let you have a look at how far the world of hard drives has progressed.

Seagate, initially called Shugart (after its founder Alan Shugart), launched the world's first 5.25in hard drive, the ST-506HDD, in 1980. Equipped with an ST412 interface, this hard drive span at 3600rpm and had a whopping 5MB storage capacity.
