Performance

I purchased this to replace my DDS3 tape backup. The speed, access and higher capacity are nice although I typically have been getting compression of 1:1.4 not the 1:2.5. Unfortunately there isn't a verify feature to make sure the file backup is accurate. I think this is a big downside for a backup device. With price of hard drives getting cheaper by the day, I'm not sure if I'm going to keep this or get an external USB case and buy a few drives to swap.

The drive itself works as advertised, I am quite pleased. However, the Automatic Backup Pro software that comes with the unit will only backup local disk drives. I wanted to use it to backup a network drive. I have used it with an evaluation copy of Veritas Backup Exec (too pricey) with good results. I am going to get a copy of Backup MyPC, which should give similar results at a reasonable price.

Product Overview

The Iomega REV 35GB/90GB (native/compressed) drive is a revolutionary removable hard disk system which is more efficient and reliable than traditional tape systems, while providing portable, high-performance file storage. Compressed capacity assuming 2.6:1 data compression with "high" compression on Iomega Automatic Backup Pro software. This capacity may vary since compression is data and software dependent. Iomega REV drives allow you to back up and restore up to 8 times faster than tape, access files in seconds with drag-and-drop, and secure your data with password protection. The drive also includes professional-level backup software for file backup and full system backup.
