Zip Drives - Help me navigate this mare incognitae
i am going to pose a stupid question - how do zip drives work. i mean, do they actually compress the data so 1 gig because x megabytes, or is it akin to a cd-rom or floppy disk?
i need to free up space on my hard drive - too many pornos, you know - and i'd like one or several of the more computer savvy members to provide guidance. recommendations would be nice, too. at the moment, i am favoring iomega's zip 750 mb.
or, is what i want, a portable hard drive? please, please, with sugar on top, give me an answer.
