Why Tape ?

Your data, software and Internet downloads are invaluable.

Replacing them in the event of loss can take many days, and often is impossible. Backing up on floppies is impractical, given the capacities of today's hard disks. So, do what business PC users do - complete your system with a tape drive. They're easy to install and use, and offer the lowest cost per megabyte of any available storage choice.
