Of all the backup devices I have ever used, the tape drive has been the least reliable. The tapes aren't the problem, it's the tape drive that always fails, and it usually takes the tape with it.

It's because what you get on the free market is all junk, I've seen the real tape drives in a backup archive (fully automated) deep underground (had more than 7PB of storage in tapes) and those never failed. The robotic arm neither, but that was in a fully climate controlled shielded room, aka, EMP secured clean room on shock-absorbing dampeners...

TL;DR; German Universities take data security very very serious. And tape is the way for this, not for casual backup though. a HDD lasts a lot longer than any public tape storage or drive system.

Companion robot defeated by stairs though.... maybe they should call the Daleks for some helpful pointers

Ps.: Windows eye control means it always tracks where you look, creepy!
