Tape Backup Drives

Tape backup drives currently come in an assortment of sizes and capacities. At one time, tape backup drives were almost exclusively used to back up network file servers. Now tape backup drives are growing in popularity among individual computer users. Hard disk drives have grown in size to where it is inconceivable to think of backing them up using floppy disks; tape drives have been following the lead set by hard disk drives and are also dropping in price.

Choosing a tape backup drive is largely a matter of how much you want to spend. An expensive tape backup drive won't back up any better than a cheaper model, but an expensive drive will most likely back up your hard disk faster and use fewer tapes.
