If only other technology vendors would learn from IOmega
A month ago I bought a brand new IOmega ZIP drive to recover data I'd backed up onto 10GB ZIP disks back in 1997. Those ZIP disks were banging around a dirty, damp compartment in my motor home (caravan for the Queen's subjects) for the past 11 years. I wiped the crud off of them (15 in total) and stuck them into the new USB ZIP drive - and PRESTO! every disk was completely readable. No data loss.
Try THAT stunt with 11 year old EMC tape backups...IF you can find an 8mm tape drive!
Mine's the one with the ciggys in one pocket and the ZIP disks in the other...
