Iomega Zip Disk Data Transfer

(100MB, 250MB, 750MB)

We transfer your Zip Disk to accessible files on a USB or External Hard Drive.

Intending to compete with the 3.5" Floppy, Iomega released a data format that would dwarf the storage limitations of the market dominant 3.5". Using a proprietary drive, Iomega’s Zip disks would debut with an initial storage capacity of 100MB (equivalent to 70x 3.5” Disks), earning it the classification of “Superfloppy”. Subsequently Iomega would release 250MB, and finally 750MB versions as late as 2002.

Though similar in appearance to its competition, the Iomega disk was thicker, and read from an opening along the top edge of the casing, opposed to the flat surface of the disk face as seen on its predecessors.

While it didn’t replace the 3.5" Floppy, the Zip’s ample storage and access speed, proved a valuable asset in media production environments, and navigation systems. Iomega provided consumers with a relatively simple solution to backing up hard drives, but it’s high cost of entry prevented it from securing a greater market share.
