Toshiba today announced the compact, easy-to-use Canvio for Mac Portable Hard Drive lineup. The new Canvio line provides Mac owners 500 gigabytes (GB), 750GB, or one terabyte (TB) of storage space, with pre-loaded Mac-customized backup software.
The Canvio for Mac line makes data backup simple for everyone. The included NTI® Shadow 5 for Mac software allows for fully-customized backup and synchronization, including the backup of specific folders, certain file types, or even a complete system backup and recovery of everything that is saved on the Mac. Selected folders on the Canvio for Mac and the Mac computer can be merged and synchronized, while the frequency of backups can be adjusted to different periods (from weekly to continuously) for greater convenience. Complete password-protection with up to 256-bit data encryption prevents unauthorized access to data and a special Drive Space Alert monitor sends an onscreen update when storage space is running low.
The Canvio for Mac's plug-and-play usability and full customization are matched by its small size and elegant, simple styling. Available in either Radiant Silver with silver accents or Infinite White with glossy white-gray accents on the top cover, both feature an anti-slip design and anti-slip side, making the Canvio for Mac an excellent companion to the full line of Mac computers. On the inside, an Internal Shock Sensor and Ramp Loading Technology keep data safe during day-to-day movement from a desk, pocket, bag, or beyond. Despite being smaller than a postcard and boasting a featherweight (six ounce) frame, the Canvio for Mac — in 1TB form — can hold up to 285,000 digital photos, 263,000 digital music files, or 820 digital movies.
The Canvio product line is available now at the following retail prices::
- $119.99 for the 500GB Canvio for Mac
- $139.99 for the 750GB Canvio for Mac
- $189.99 for the 1TB Canvio for Mac
