Inernal CDROM and Backup unit in an octane?

Inernal CDROM and Backup unit in an octane?
I have seen this picture of an octane 2 with what appears to be a CDROM drive and Backup tape drive mounted into the drive caddy locations.

Does anyone know anything about these drives?

Yep, the floppy disk drive (not CDROM) is upside (I tried taking it apart once since it annoyed me but to no avail) and the tape is a DDS 2 (iirc).

My very first original discreet Octane came with both of these.

The top bay looks like a tape and the bottom looks like either a floppy or floptical drive.

The octane drive bays are too small for a 5.25” CD rom drive unit.
