The Sony SuperStation 10GB Tape Drive is inexpensive, portable,  and reliable.  With this tape drive you can back up your entire system, store extra files, or download from the internet. It's setup is fast and easy with a very quick and simple one touch backup. Had this reviewer had this device before his system crashed he would have saved a lot of time and headaches re-formatting his system and reinstalling all of his programs.
