Is Exabyte format completely dead?
I am getting rid of an old workstation which has an internal Exabyte 8mm tape drive. Would anyone have a use for it?

Other than as an archive, I can't imagine the need for anything tape.
I started recording about 17years ago and I've never even heard of exabyte!! Sounds cool. Maybe it would look cool in a display case?
To quote a post on this very website:
"Exabyte Tape is a long-held industry standard for digital storage, backup and delivery to mastering houses."
Trouble is, that post was in 2006. I wondered if any of that archive material was still out there on exabyte format and anyone wanting to read it might have a need for a tape drive.
