From the Manufacturer

Don’t let the Zip 250 MB drive’s sleek, ultra-thin and lightweight appearance fool you. The Zip 250 MB drive is also the most durable storage solution for backing up your important data–and it reads and writes Zip 100 MB disks, too. With its combination of style and functionality, the Zip 250 MB drive is the high capacity storage solution you’ll want to take everywhere. And you can–thanks to a single USB cable that provides data and power to your Mac or PC. No external power supply is needed.
And your Zip 250 MB USB-powered drive starter kit comes with three Zip 250 MB disks to get you started. Also, your Zip drive’s software suite includes Iomega Automatic Backup software, to make backup a snap; and Iomega Sync software, to transfer files between computers seamlessly–making it perfect for mobile users.
Iomega Automatic Backup software backs up your important files automatically. Simply select the files you want to protect and personalize your backup schedule and location(s). The software does the rest! Backup locations include Zip drives, Iomega HDD drives, and Iomega NAS servers. Restoring data is easy–just drag and drop (Version 1.0.2).
Iomega Sync software allows you the freedom of portable data protection, keeping your important files synched between multiple computers. Active Disk-powered, the Iomega Sync software lives, launches, and runs on your portable Zip disk. As you change and save files, Iomega Sync automatically synchronizes between your hard drive and your disk. So, your latest file revision is always on your Zip disk, making Iomega Sync the perfect choice for mobile users.
When you add a Zip drive to your computer, it is like adding 250 MB to your computer’s storage capacity. And with each Zip 250 MB disk you purchase, you add 250 MB more! And because Zip disks are the most durable backup media, you never have to worry about a scratch destroying your data.
Active Disk technology gives you the power to run unique software applications straight from your Zip disk. Download other Active Disk-powered software titles to your Zip disks and run them everywhere you go. There’s nothing to install on your computer because the application launches automatically when you insert your Zip disk. Both the software and the projects that you create stay right on the disk, so they won’t clutter up your hard drive. Simply eject it when you’re finished, and everything is saved to your Zip disk. And since your software and files are on a Zip disk, you know they’re completely safe, secure and portable.
