Tape Drive Challenges

The biggest challenge with using any type of tape for backing up data is the sensitivity of the read-write heads in the drive.

Often, a tape created in one drive cannot be read from by a different drive of identical make and model.

Even more disturbing is a tape drive that has been repaired, due to some malfunction that cannot read tapes it had written before the malfunction.

Despite all of this, current technology improvements have made it possible to store over 100GB of data on a single tape that is slightly bigger than box of matches.
