I have been asked to check that there is nothing personal on some zip disks before they are got rid of. Can anyone point me at a free prog that can read such disks?
You will need to install the Zip drive on your PC
the zip drive works fine on w7 but I need a prog to read the disks
If they are being "got rid of", why not just physically destroy the disks?
Zip disks were used in conjunction with Iomega's dedicated disk drives.
If the zip drive works then you shouldn't need a special program to read the contents. The files will be as other drives. Reformat several times should destroy the data. But the best option is destruction.
Best to stick each one in a Vice and break it in half.
A reformat will not destroy the data. You need a program that will overwrite the drive, preferably several times. CCleaner can do this for you (under the Tools section)
Just destroy them
thanks all I will destroy them
