toshibaToshiba Singapore Pte Ltd recently announced the launch of Canvio® Connect II Portable Hard Drive, a device that takes portable storage to the next level.

Available with up to 3TB of storage capacity, remote access capabilities, cloud backup and the ability to share and stream content, the Toshiba Canvio® Connect II is an all-in-one portable storage solution.

Recognizing the importance of data mobility on today’s age, the hard drive is coupled with Pogoplug® PC Software. Users can leave Canvio® Connect II at home, and still have access to stream files on hard drive via iOS/android app from smartphone – as long as the hard drive is connected to an internet-enabled PC. Using this connection, users can also upload files from smartphone to hard drive.

“Digital content creation has grown exponentially. The Canvio® Connect II was created with this understanding in mind,” said Ms Wong Wai Meng, senior manager of Toshiba Singapore. “With expanded storage capacity, sleek design and five vibrant color options, the Canvio® Connect II takes portable hard drive storage to a new level.”

Canvio® Connect II also comes bundled with free 10GB cloud storage. Users can simply download or upload files using a web browser or app on smartphone. Sharing of large files on cloud storage is also made easy as users can easily select the files visible to recipient, via a web link.

Not forgetting the hard drive’s core function on backing up of files, Canvio® Connect II has the ability to clone a PC’s OS, applications and settings, and users can choose to recover a file, folder or restore a laptop from PC crash with NTI® Backup Now EZ™.

The pre-loaded NTI® Backup Now EZ™ software also makes scheduling and securing backups with user-defined password possible.

Toshiba’s Canvio® Connect II is pre-formatted with NTFS for Windows PC and comes with a NTFS driver for Mac. This allows users to store and access files from their PC and Mac without reformatting. The hard drive includes three-year limited local warranty.
