Bandenhet


Explanation:
Det är den benämning som används av MicroSoft, se t.ex. i Kontrollpanelen. Företeelsen finns alltså även nu i "modern tid" och används då, oftast, för säkerhetskopiering. Med "bandstation" avses nog den gamla typen av enhet (modell större) med en stor rulle där bandet skulle viras runt en massa olika små rullar.

Lycka till!
