Windows 7 does support tape drives. Get a copy of Backup Exec. Windows native backup dropped support for tapes a long time ag0 (2008).

Get a small Cirago or USB power 2.5 inch drive. Run Disk2VHD or the native windows Backup. That resulting VHD is a full backup (you can mount it and grab files if you need to). Its also around the same size as a tape and I find the price comparable to an LTO2 tape.
