This sophisticated external HDD available in silver and dark grey metallic is perfect for the modern lifestyle-oriented consumer looking for a superior storage unit.

Able to store even large digital libraries with up to 3TB[1] storage capacity, the Canvio Premium is perfect for the fashion-conscious wanting to keep their precious movies, music and photos safe. Pocket-sized and easy to carry with a soft pouch included, it combines practicality with a fast USB 3.0 port, making transfers at home, work or on-the-go speedy and straightforward.

Because it can be locked with a unique password, users do not have to worry about unauthorised users accessing important data stored on the hard drive. For convenience, backup software supplied with the drive allows scheduling of automatic backup at any time and any day.

The Canvio Premium is also available in a Mac ready-use model, the Canvio Premium for Mac, already formatted with HFS+ for daily use with Mac devices, making it possible to transfer data from and to a Mac without the need to reformat. The devices are available in dark grey metallic and silver metallic, in capacities of 1 TB, 2 TB and 3 TB. The drives will be on the market from mid-April. From March 14th to 18th the new premium hard drive will be presented at the CeBIT 2016 together with the whole storage line-up of Toshiba in hall 14, booth H52.
