2.2 GB Portable Discs: Castlewood's ORB Drive

Access Time: As Fast As Older Hard Drives

At approximately 22 milliseconds the Orb drive is as fast as a hard drives used to be in the mid-90s. Todays hard drives are between 10 and 15 ms.

Windows 2000 And Windows NT 4.0

The Castlewood software can be used with all Windows systems, with only the USB version being difficult to operate using Windows NT 4.0 due to the missing OS support for the USB. We ran the internal IDE drive using all common Windows operating systems. Originally we wanted to do some benchmarks with Windows 2000 as well, but as they do not differ from the Windows 98 results, we decided to drop them.
