Backup Tape

A hard drive with memory space available to save extra copies of computer data. That is, a backup tape is where one stores data in case the original data is lost. Having backup tape is especially important if one keeps a great deal of information for one's company on a computer. Businesses commonly use backup tape to keep their computer information in more than one place.
