Iomega Corporation, a global leader in data storage, today announced the new
Iomega® Network Hard Drive for shared file storage on home and small networks.
Available immediately in capacities of 160GB* or 250GB, Iomega’s Network Hard
Drive is perfect for home and small business users, providing a convenient
location for shared files, photos, music and video. The Iomega Network Hard
Drive lightens the storage load for networked PCs without the cost and
complexity of a server.

“Large application files have become much more common in recent years, straining
the resources of home and small business users,” said Chris McPherson, managing
director, Asia Pacific, Iomega Pacific. “People outgrow their hard drives, or
they find that they are losing track of important files because the files are
scattered across the network. The new Iomega Network Hard Drive solves both
problems by keeping those large files together in a convenient, easily managed
location. This new product meets a huge demand for flexible, low-cost network
storage for the kinds of files that people are using today.”

Network Storage Made Simpler

Conventional external hard drives require a host PC for their storage
connection. However, the Iomega Network Hard Drive simplifies life for network
users by attaching directly to the network via its 10/100 Fast Ethernet port and
running independently of any PC. As a result, every network user enjoys
uninterrupted file access even when the other PCs on the network are not
running, providing client PCs with total flexibility to shut down or reboot as
needed.

Installation is also extremely easy, even for non-technical users. After
plugging the drive into an available Ethernet port—for instance, on the
broadband router that many households use to share Internet access—each user
simply runs Iomega’s discovery tool software, which automatically configures
access to the Network Hard Drive for that PC. The Network Hard Drive then
appears on the desktop as a locally attached drive and can be used just like any
other drive. The Iomega 250GB Network Hard Drive can store the equivalent of 375
hours of video, over 4,300 hours of music, or 1 million photos.**

Iomega Automatic Backup Included

Each Network Hard Drive comes complete with award-winning Iomega Automatic
Backup software for up to four client PCs. With Iomega Automatic Backup
software, backups are automatic and “touch-free”—no need to remember to push a
button or run a program. Users simply select the files and folders to protect,
set the backup schedule, and let Iomega Automatic Backup software do the rest.
And restoring data is easy—just drag and drop.

Iomega Automatic Backup software includes these advanced features:

· Enables touch-free backups whenever a file changes
· Allows personalized backup schedules
· Supports multiple backup locations
· Saves multiple file revisions (user selectable)
· Supports DVD, CD, hard drives, network drives, and solid-state memory cards
· Caches backup data when backup media is unavailable
· Simplifies file restoration with drag and drop convenience

Also included is Adobe® Photoshop® Album SE for managing digital photo
collections and MusicMatch® Jukebox for digital audio.

PCs running Microsoft® Windows® 98/98SE/Me/2000/XP operating systems, Mac® OS X

the Linux System), and Samba version 3.04 or above. Configuration relies on DHCP
(Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) IP addressing, which is provided by the
router, switch or hub used to connect the Iomega Network Hard Drive.
