New Life for my Zip Drive

When I upgraded my operating system last fall, I discovered that my old 100MB zip disks had become read only. No information from the Iomega home page (100MB technology isn't really supported directly any longer). I was about to get rid of my drive and all the disks, many new, but when I tried reformatting one of them before discarding it I realized that the disk was again read and write accessible.

I'm back to using my zip disks for temporary archive back ups of work in progress or offline storage until I have enough material for a CD or DVD backup.
