ditwintools.exe (self-extracting) will install Veritas Ditto Tools Ver 5.5, also known as Quick Back-up for Windows.
It's Copyright 1999, so should be Y2K OK. See the readme.txt cautions.
Ditto98.exe will install Iomega One-Step Backup for Win 98.
(I didn't like this program - it seemed way too insistant.)
Ditdostools.exe will install Veritas Quick Back-Up Ver 5.3 for DOS.
Note: I found that my standard DOS boot disks (which include CD ROM drivers and such) didn't leave enough conventional memory to run Qbackup's Restore function, without having to shut down TSR's. I got a "memory allocation error" warning until I realized the problem.
All three programs are available for download at the iomega.com web page, in the Ditto support area. They may be more up-to-date than the CD that accompanied your Ditto Tape Drive.
