DECTape II (1978 – early 1980s)

DECtape II was introduced around 1978 by Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC) for use in the TU58 tape drive, and was a specially formatted version of DC100.

DECtape II used 3.8 mm tape in a cassette format.

Like its predecessor, DECtape, a DECtape II cartridge had a capacity of about 256 kb. DECtape II cartridges could not be formatted by the end-user, and had to be purchased in a pre-formatted state.
