Backup data onto Zip 100 - which program

  Christopher Lewis 11:05 19 Feb 2005

I'm on the search for a backup program which will work on my system.I have a PC running Win98SE, and a USB Zip 100 drive. I have been happily using this for my daily data backups for 2-3 years.

Can anyone suggest a simple backup program? I just need to do daily backups, with a scheduler.

For some reason the Iomega software I use has stopped working - it gets stuck at the 'initialising' stage. I've tried uninstalling, cleaning registry and reinstalling, with the same result. I guess I probably installed something that interferes, but don't know what. I can still use the drive with Windows Explorer. Windows backup program can't handle a USB Zip drive!

It could be that the ZIP drive itself is not working.

I had one that wore out after many years of good service. It started to go through the motions of doing something then gave up. A new one (250MB version) worked fine.

I don't use either nowadays. I find them very expensive, slow and they don't have enough capacity for my needs.

The drive is working OK. I can drag and drop files to it, or open files on the discs, using standard windows methods.
