Too small as well, or rather, size of backup grows quicker than tape 
size does

I've gone to a system with separate backup machine, running most backup 
on mirror disks, which wakes up at night and does automatic backup.

The HDD tend to get replaced as they grow too smal, not because of disk 
And if i get a disk failure, its only half of a mirror that dies.
