CD-RW maybe? DVD-RW maybe? DVD-RAM maybe?

But you're right, you'd think there would still be a market
for a removable platter or cartridge. It would need to have
density and speed comparable to hard drives, though.
The problem is, hard drives are so inexpensive.

Don't get me started about backup for naive users.
I'll start to cry. How is the average Windows user
supposed to know how to backup their email, attachments
and documents? Just start with "where" all those files
might be...
