We have a ZIP100 zip drive, using an older version of IOMEGA backup. Why is it now saying that it needs 15 disks for the backup, when it
previously used only one. We just tried to redefine the backup parameters, which got erased.

Check the total size of all the files that are part of the backup set.

My guess is that you have been doing incremental rather than full backups.

Since you lost the parameter file, IOMega tools does not know which files are new or changed.

Depending on how critical your data is, and how often files change, you should be performing a full backup a minimum of once a month if not once a week.

If your data set is 1.5 GB to 3 GB as the 15 disks imply, you need to look at newer back up technology.
