Canvio Connect

Toshiba Canvio Connect

Canvio Connect is a portable USB 3.0 hard drive that enables personal cloud storage. The Canvio Connect comes preinstalled with software that turns the portable drive into an online file server when it is plugged into a Windows or Mac computer. As long as the Canvio Connect is connected to an Internet-enabled PC that is powered on, users will have complete access to files, photos, music and movies from any device.

The Canvio Connect serves as a portable hard drive but can also be used to back up images and other files from mobile devices. Toshiba has announced 10-GB of free cloud storage available to Canvio Connect users (via the Pogoplus service).

Canvio Connect was announced on April 30, 2013 by Toshiba’s Digital Products Division (DPD), a division of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc.
