Back before there were USB/FireWire external storage drives, people used to back up their computer systems to tape drives... I remember days of tape backup back when I used qic-80 and tr-1 tapes on my PC. I found this in the case for an old tape:

3m front 3m front 001

Tape backup is still used, but has improved since the '80s... to many companies, tape backup is still preferred.
