Safeguard your valuable data

The Canvio® Desk desktop external hard drive is preloaded with software to make backup fast and simple.

The included NTI® Backup Now EZ™ software scans your system and recommends the best coverage for your computer. Choose between backing up your files to the cloud, backing up your files and folders to your Canvio® Desk hard drive, backing up everything saved on your computer, or choose all three for the most comprehensive coverage.

Click the restore button and you can recover a file or folder. Boot to your Canvio® Desk Hard Drive and it will restore all the files saved on your computer. We’ve even included a utility to create a bootable USB flash drive to make the process even simpler.

Secure your backup files with password-protected data encryption, (up to 256-bit), to help keep your backup safe and prevent unauthorized access.

The Drive Space Alert monitor will keep an eye on your drive and let you know when it is getting full.

For advanced users, we’ve added the ability to customize your backup routine. Options include the ability to select only the most common file types, (like work documents, pictures, movies, music, etc.), change how often your backup takes place (hourly, daily, weekly, etc.) and change the threshold settings on the Drive Space Alert.

Toshiba Canvio® Desk Desktop External Hard Drive is built in accordance with Toshiba’s high quality standard offering reliable high capacity add-on storage and backup solution with the latest USB technology.
