Toshiba has announced its latest portable hard drive which goes by the name of Canvio Connect. Available in 500GB, 1TB and 2TB models the new product offers high storage capacities as well as the ability to access and share files directly from the device. Like its predecessors, the Canvio Connect comes pre-loaded with NTI Backup Now EZ that lets you clone your computer and restores it to its original state in the case of a crash.
In addition, the new Toshiba HDDs allow you to backup videos and photos directly from a smart device with the help of an app. The Toshiba Storage app is available for both iOS and Android. As long as the Canvio is connected to an internet enabled PC that is powered on, users can also access the content on it from where ever they are. As an added bonus, the Canvio Connect also includes 10GB of free cloud storage.
Pre-formatted with NTFS for Windows PC, the Toshiba Canvio Connect comes with a NTFS driver for Mac, allowing users to use the HDD with either platform. The device includes a three year local warranty. The Canvio Connect will be available at the PC at discounted prices (500GB for S$85, 1TB for S$115, 2TB for S$215) and will include a free pouch with purchase.
