EXHIBIT 99.1 PRESS RELEASE

                                                                    Exhibit 99.1


                ADIC Reports One Cent EPS in Q2; Continued Margin
     Improvement; Branded Sales up Nine Percent; Million Shares Repurchased



    REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 19, 2005--Advanced Digital
Information Corporation (Nasdaq:ADIC) today announced second quarter
earnings of $733,000, or one cent per share, on sales of $106 million
versus a loss of $1.3 million, or two cents per share, on sales of
$111 million during the same quarter last year. The Company had a loss
of $270,000 during the immediately preceding quarter on sales of
nearly $111 million. For the six months ended April 30, 2005, the
Company earned $463,000, or one cent per share, compared to earnings
of $3.4 million, or five cents per share, during the first six months
of fiscal 2004.
    Gross profit as a percentage of sales was 30.8 percent during the
second quarter, up from 28.2 percent a year ago and 29.6 percent in
the preceding first quarter. An improved mix of product sales,
including a higher proportion of ADIC(R) branded sales, contributed to
a higher gross profit percentage despite slightly lower overall sales
volume. Overall second quarter sales declined approximately four
percent from both the same quarter last year and the immediately
preceding quarter. Branded sales were up approximately nine percent
from the same period last year and flat sequentially while OEM sales
were down 19 percent and ten percent from last year and the preceding
quarter, respectively.
    Improved gross profit, albeit on lower total sales, allowed the
company to report an operating profit of $41,000 in the second quarter
versus operating losses of $1.4 million reported for both second
quarter 2004 and the preceding first quarter of fiscal 2005. Operating
expenses during the just completed second quarter included
approximately $500,000 in severance and relocation costs associated
with the previously announced closure of development facilities in New
York and California as well as costs associated with reorganization
among the Company's European operations.
    "We are particularly pleased with the progress in our branded
product and services business, although expected declines in OEM sales
are obscuring some of that success," according to Chair and Chief
Executive Officer Peter van Oppen. "Enterprise tape library products,
including our Scalar 10K and i2000, each showed annual growth in
double digits while our new disk-based backup products, the Pathlight
PVX series, experienced sequential growth in excess of 50 percent," he
said. "These trends make us optimistic about continued branded growth,
which should be reflected in total sales as our OEM business
stabilizes. Additionally, we have previously said we expect to begin
shipping new OEM products before the end of the fiscal year," van
Oppen said.
    "Gross profit percentage, particularly on lower sales volume, is
an encouraging sign about the health of our underlying business and
competitive position. We have reported improving gross margin in
several recent quarters and 30.8 percent is our best percentage result
since we reported 31.0 percent margin on $118 million in sales during
the fourth quarter of 2003," he noted.
    Second quarter 2005 is the second period for which the Company has
disclosed sales and margin numbers separately for product and service
revenues. Total product revenues for the quarter, which include both
branded and OEM product sales, are down 7.8 percent and 5.7 percent on
an annual and sequential basis, respectively. The bulk of these
declines result from reduced OEM product sales while branded product
sales are up 4.6 percent over the second quarter last year and down
1.7 percent from first quarter 2005. Service revenues, which are
included in total branded revenues but not included in branded product
revenues, are up 25.7 percent over the year ago period and 7.1 percent
over the immediately preceding quarter.
    Combined branded revenues, including both products and service,
reached 60 percent of total revenues for the first time in several
years during the quarter compared with 53 percent during the same
period last year and 58 percent in the preceding quarter. OEM revenues
equaled approximately 40 percent of total revenues during the period.
    Net cash provided by operating activities for the six months
ending April 30 was $21.9 million. Subtracting reported cash flow from
operations through January 31 indicates second quarter cash flow from
operations was $6.6 million. Total cash and marketable securities were
$240 million at the end of the period.
    The Company repurchased slightly over one million shares of stock
during the second quarter at an average price of $8.35 per share, for
a total cost of $8.5 million. Total repurchases during the past year
are now over two million shares. Yesterday, the Company's board
replenished existing authorizations to provide authority for future
repurchases of up to five million shares.
