How Do I Get Data From My Zip Disk?

Tuesday, March 15th, 2016 by | Filed Under: File & Disk Management, Quick Tips

In response to our article about the difference between flash and ZIP drives, Greg wrote: “I have a bunch of those zip disks that I used years back how ever I don’t have the zip drive any longer. Is there a way that I can get this information off of these zip disks some how at this time so that I can dispose of these disks all together now that they are discontinued.”

Greg, you’ll need to find an external ZIP drive that is compatible with your PC or find a company that does that type of data transfer.  There’s no way to do it without a ZIP drive, though.

You may find a local computer place to do the work for you, and there also many companies who can do it online.
