Default Tape Drive Recommendation
Anyone have any recommendations on tape backup drives. I'm doing about 10 GB now and I'm anticipating around 5 GB+ annual growth. It's been many years since I used one so any pointers would be helpful .

TIA

Do you have a specific reason for using "tapes"?

Why not use an external USB hard drive?

An external hd is not adequate for our security/redundancy needs.

Also, some of these tapes will be more for long term storage which a hd isn't appropriate for.

External hd's are great for home back-ups. They are not great for what I need.
