KT Technology Pocket HardDisk
You think that thumb drive is rather new invention? Well, this is a portable disk from late 80s, sold to mid-90s. In 1993 it was expanded to 100 or 200MB, in 1995 to 500MB but this little drive is 40MB. Inside, there's a 2.5" IDE notebook hard drive connected to module, which allows it to be plugged to parallel port of PC. Power is taken from keyboard connector. Drivers can be stored on a boot disk taken with the disk to access data in every DOS computer.
Unfortunately PHd made by KT Technology is not easy expandable - it allows to put only a disk which was designed to, not larger one, and DOS driver is dedicated for drive size.
Last units or clones contained Shuttle's EPAT parallel-to-IDE chip installed on EPEZ module. Theoretically it could be upgraded with bigger hard disk.
