Takes a long time to back up system

I've had a Colorado 3000 tape back up in my computer for about 3 years. I do a daily backup of just those files that have changed, and a weekly "Fully System Backup" once each week--and I have since I had this drive added to my computer.

Recently, I noticed that it was taking longer and longer for my "Full System Backup" to complete it's task. At one point it took more than 2 Days to run the backup.

I retensioned a tape 4 times (that's what HP says to do to clean the head) and I bought brand new Travan tape (in case my tape had gone bad). Still, it's taking 24+ hours to do a full system backup.

Does anyone have any idea what may be the cause of this situation. I'd really appreciate some help with this.
