Toshiba Introduces Cloud-Based Backup Capabilities

Toshiba’s Digital Products Division (DPD) has introduced its Canvio 3.0 portable hard disk drive (HDD) line featuring cloud-based backup capabilities and storage capacities of 500 gigabytes (GB), 750GB or one terabyte (TB).

Equipped with pre-loaded backup software, the new Canvio 3.0 line comes with simple plug-and-play operation and is compatible with personal computers and other devices equipped with USB 3.0 or USB 2.0 ports.
Toshiba has designed this line to address the requirements of those who use the cloud for digital storage.

Because the Canvio 3.0 drives are pre-loaded with Windows-based NTI BackupNow EZ software, users benefit from step-by-step and fully-customizable backup capabilities to the cloud and to the drive.
Once the users create a cloud account with NTI BackupNow EZ, they can accomplish several tasks such as backup specific folders, certain file types, and conduct a complete system backup to the Canvio 3.0.

Toshiba claims that this backup software also has the ability to scan the user’s system and files and can recommend which files to backup to cloud-based or on-device storage.

Digital consumers need to quickly backup high resolution photographs, important documents, high definition videos and large music files in a seamless storage system. HDDs with cloud-based backup capabilities offer consumers a digital safety net against system failure,” said Maciek Brzeski, vice president of HDD retail products, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., Digital Products Division. “With cloud-based backup, Canvio 3.0 offers consumers a simple and easy backup solution for all types of digital files that need reliable storage.

Elaborating further on its products Toshiba says that the Canvio Basics 3.0 features a new compact design and is also available in 500GB, 750GB and 1TB capacities.  The Canvio 3.0 offers complete password protection with up to 256-bit data encryption to protect users from unauthorized access to data. If storage space is running low an on-screen Drive Space Alert monitor will send an alert to the user.
