QIC Tapes

QIC tapes find their use mostly in small companies or in the private sector. Because the hardware is inexpensive, QIC drives are widely common...

Several years ago, mini cartridge meant QIC-80, QIC-100, QIC-1000, 2000 or QIC-3000. Mini cartridge was a fixed term for the 3.5 inch memory tape until in 1994, when Imation Corporation developed TravanT as 3M, a new tape format, and introduced it into the market. Slight changes in length and width of the 3.5 inch QIC mini cassette format enabled TravanT to triple the capacity common at that time of 400MB to up to 4GB (uncompromised).

TravanT created important prerequisites in order to take into account the dramatic increase in capacity demands for the Desktop area. In spite of the the new dimensions and capacities, the backwards compatibility to the old QIC standards remained in place.

The first TravanT generation, developed as a dependable and inexpensive desktop solution for data back up and established itself as the new global desktop data back up standard shortly after it's introduction into the market The parallel recording process is what made the QIC and later the Travan system very robust and long lived.

Unfortunately the information flow rate of the QIC systems found on the market today is very slow in comparison to the DAT and DLT drives. Therefore these systems are not suitable for fast data back up of large amounts of data.

A further development based on the QIC technology, that is the → MLR technology, is a growing competition to DAT and DLT tape back up drives.

The most common reason for the reconstruction of QIC tapes is the inadvertent overwriting of data or incorrect handling of the tapes e.g. storage conditions.
