Syquest is a company most noted for making affordable volume removable storage media and related drives for computer systems. They were so popular in the early 1990’s that their name became synonymous with the removable hard drive cartridge to the extent that it is sometimes used as a generic name for them (which also elevates its stature to being worthy of an inSync Word for the Day). Early Syquest drives and media were 44 Megabytes. Later they updated to 88 MB drives, and then on to 105 and larger sizes. SyQuest filed a Chapter 11 petition with the United States Bankruptcy Court in Oakland, California on November 17, 1998. Trading in SyQuest stock was suspended on November 2, 1998. Their assets are currently being sold to Iomega, another company known for its removable media.
