The definition of ?Electronic data? also includes any and all items stored on computer memory or memories, hard disks, floppy disks, zip drives, CD-ROM discs, Bernoulli Boxes and their equivalents, magnetic tapes of all types and kinds, microfiche, punched cards, punched tape, computer chips (including but not limited to EPROM, PROM, ROM and RAM of any kind) on or in any other vehicle for digital data storage or transmittal, files, folder tabs, or containers and labels appended to or associated with any physical storage device associated with each original and each copy.
