What are the disadvantages of magnetic tape?
6. Magnetic Tape
|Advantages of magnetic tape||Disadvantages of magnetic tape|
|Can be set up to do the back up overnight or over the weekend||The data may be corrupted if the tape is placed near a strong magnetic field e.g. a large speaker or magnet|
What are the disadvantages of magnetic storage?
|Magnetic storage: Hard Disc Drive (HDD)||Relatively cheap per unit of storage. Fast access and retrieval times compared to other storage devices.||Can be easily damaged, will slow down and eventually break over time. Slower access than Solid State Drives.|
