It could use either 8" or 5.25", it came with a single-density controller 
but there were a number of third party double-density upgrades.

The 820 is a clone of the bigboard.

I don't have any of Xerox's docs but I just got a huge pile of 
Micro-Cornucopia mags that have a lot of info on the 820.

It is on my to be scanned pile which is large.

Contact me off-list and I'll see if I can help.
