Hey JeanDavid,,,

Here are some other suggestion for you.

What you can do, just confirm that your Tape-Drive works OK with Win/7 in your new machine, is to download the Free test version of Acronis and check it out, while you look for a Free-Backup solution.

Acronis has Win/7 Independent Tape support. You can get the Free-Trial Versions here:

or here: http://www.acronis.com/backup-recovery/enterprise.html

Also, just my Opinion: maybe it's just time to give up the Ghost on Tape-Drives!!! They are going the way of 5-1/4" Floppy.
The newer external USB-2/3 drives are fairly compact, here is an example:

Western Digital My Passport Essential 500GB USB 3.0
Portable Hard Drive Blue - WDBACY5000ABL-NESN: Price: $69.99

Physical Dimensions:

Height 0.60 Inches
Depth 3.2 Inches
Width 4.3 Inches
Weight 0.31 Pounds

Also, Western Digital has a FREE-Version of Acronis Backup-Software, that works on WD-Drives, don't know if it works on other Brand-Drives or NOT!!!!!!
