Toshiba just announced Canvio Connect, a portable external hard drive that offers the ability to access, share and backup files from virtually anywhere. So you can back up videos and photos directly from smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices that are equipped with Toshiba Storage’s iOS or Android app to the external hard drive.
As long as Toshiba’s Canvio Connect is connected to an Internet-enabled PC that is powered on, users will have complete access to their files, photos, music and movies from any device — no matter where they are. The Canvio Connect also allows users to share large files and folders instantly. As an additional bonus, the Canvio Connect includes 10GB of free cloud storage for storing “always available” copies of important files.
While the access and share feature sets the Canvio Connect apart from competitive products, the device is still a powerhouse when it comes to traditional storage and full system, files and folder backup capabilities and is extremely easy to set up and use. And like all Toshiba products, the Canvio Connect portable hard drive is designed from the ground up with consumer needs in mind, and then tested again and again for reliability. It can be counted on to perform as advertised—every time.
Toshiba’s Canvio Connect is pre-formatted NTFS for Windows PC and comes with a NTFS driver for Mac, allowing users to store and access files from their PC and Mac without reformatting. The device also includes two year limited warranty.
