Toshiba adds cloud storage backup to HDDs Toshiba has announced today that its Canvio line of external HDDs will be given a cloud storage backup service as an option.
Furthermore, the Canvio Basics and Canvio 3.0 lines have been updated to add support for 6 Gbs USB 3.0. The other lines remain on the 480 Mbps USB 2.0 standard.

The Canvio 3.0 drives come with NTI's BackupNow EZ software allowing for fully-customizable cloud and drive backup.

BackupNow EZ is based on Microsoft Azure tech and allows for single file, folder or file system backup.

Says Toshiba:

All the consumer has to do is click, 'OK.' It's a complete system backup to the hard drive, including the OS. And, it's a bootable drive so if your computer breaks down, you can boot to drive and select a point and time and when to restart and your computer puts everything back.
