This Zip Tools installer version 5.5.1 was a "Web Release" that installs Iomega Tools 6.1. These include the Iomega Driver, the Tools application program, Iomega Drive Options, Iomega Guest, and manuals.

New features in Tools 6.1 include an ability to (1) diagnose a disk for problems, (2) tell you the serial number of a disk, and (3) report a disk's remaining "life." Details are in the documentation that comes with the software. The software update also supports Zip Plus and Jaz 2GB drives, and allows Zip and Jaz disks to be formatted for DOS. It also allows formatting in the background. Mac OS 8.1 users can format disks using Mac OS Standard, Mac OS Extended, and Mac OS Maximized (Mac OS Maximized only appears if Alsoft's PlusMaximizer is installed). (adapted from MacFixit 1998)

The download is a Disk Copy 6.3.3 image, compressed with Stuffit 5.5.

Architecture: 68k

Works on Mac OS 7 and 8 at least, and presumably on the same CPUs as version 4.3 (SE Macs and later of the 68k family).

I have expanded the description, including a bit more information about compatibility.
