Technology Flashback: Tape Backup Part 2

I have recently found my old Qic-80 tape backup system… It consists of 14 120mb tapes and 1 400mb. That beast was sure was a loud beast… but it beat backing up to floppy disks. I also used Direct Tape Access… it let you use the tape drive just like a floppy drive (SLOW floppy drive. Here are some pictures i took of the system (whats left of it). I will also be reviving the old system in a P233 and recording video at a later date… stay tuned :).

  • I just pulled my old tape drive out yesterday (cleaning out the office) and while I have the drive and tapes I can’t find the software disks. I’m thinking about building back an old p233 I have to install NT4 and see if I can get this thing working again. Any chance I could get you to share your software with me?
