Toshiba’s Digital Products Division (DPD), a division of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., today announced its Canvio®3.0 portable hard disk drive (HDD), that meet the high capacity, fast access storage demands of the data-hungry digital generation. With storage capacities of 500 gigabytes (GB1), 750GB or one terabyte (TB1), the new Canvio 3.0 line also features simple plug-and-play operation, pre-loaded backup software, and is compatible with personal computers and other devices equipped with USB 3.0 or USB 2.0 ports.

Continuing Toshiba’s commitment of making data backup fast and effortless, the Canvio 3.0 drives feature the same easy-to-use features users have come to expect from Toshiba portable hard drives.  Windows™-based NTI® BackupNow EZ™ software provides step-by-step and fully-customizable backup capabilities, including the option to backup specific folders, certain file types, and conduct a complete system backup.

For advanced users, Toshiba has added the ability to customize the backup routine, including the ability to select only the most common file types for backup and change how often a backup occurs. Complete password-protection with up to 256-bit data encryption prevents unauthorized access to data and an on-screen Drive Space Alert monitor sends an alert when storage space is running low. The internal Shock Sensor and Ramp Loading Technology protect the drive during daily movement from a pocket, desk, bag, or beyond.

The stylish Canvio 3.0 product line also continues Toshiba’s high quality industrial design, including its pocket-sized, rounded rectangular form factor and sleek high gloss finish. The Canvio 3.0 is available in black, white, silver, red, and blue. To provide users with peace of mind, the Toshiba Canvio 3.0 includes a three year limited warranty.

Toshiba Canvio products have been designed and manufactured in accordance with Toshiba’s high quality product standards, incorporating the latest technology and user-interface, while ensuring best-in-class performance, quality and workmanship. The Canvio 3.0, Canvio Basics 3.0, and the complete lineup of Canvio Portable Hard Drives may be found at major retailers within North America and online outlets.  For a full list of retailers, please visit www.sdd.toshiba.com.tw
