Time to expand my storage space :) – Iomega Zip Drive

It’s 1994 and I am fed up splitting files across 1.44mb floppy disks to transfer them between PCs. There has to be a better way?

Well here it is! The Iomega ZIP drive. 100MB of storage on a single disk!

Now I never had one of these back in the day as they cost a fair amount of money and I don’t think the media was that cheap either. But I just picked this one up for £15 so that seems a bit more reasonable to me 🙂

The best thing is during the facebook conversation somone annouced that these drives could be made to work with the Atari Portfolio too!! (Thanks Gavin). So with a bit of configuration I can get the entire portfolio of Portfolio software (see what I did there?) onto a single ZIP disk.

I am going to do a write up of this process soon and will add it to the modifications section when it is done. I may do a little video about it soon too.
