    This is a consumer USB based hard drive that supports multiple format and draws its power from the USB ports. while it is designed to work while connected to an always-on PC, it's more like a personal/private cloud device as opposed to a part of your network infrastructure.

    Depending on what your are doing with the Server OS, there may be solutions that are better for an industrial use scenario than any retail-packaged portable hard drive.

    Canvio® Connect Product Overview

    • Any file. Any device. Anywhere.

      The line of Canvio® Connect portable hard drives make it easy to backup and share digital content from any location. With up to two terabytes (2TB) of storage available, consumers can simply connect the Canvio® Connect to their laptop or desktop PC to store, backup, access and share files.
    • Backup Like That!

      Unlike other solutions, the Canvio® Connect makes it simple to back up not just files and folders, but your whole system—or customize your backups to your exact needs. Secure your backups with password protection. Schedule automatic backups3. Or, store on the Cloud1 for total assurance, and for your convenience, we've included 10GB free Cloud storage for storing you most important “always accessible” files4.
    • Expanded Access, Sharing and Mobility

      Just plug it in and the Canvio® Connect turns any PC2into a great storage, sharing and backup solution. Now, no matter where you are you can upload and download photos, music, movies and even the largest of files from any PC, smartphone or tablet over the Internet. Plus, the Canvio® Connect is compact and easy to bring along.
    • Simplified Set-Up

      You might think a device this versatile would be hard to use. But, no. Just plug it in and it’s ready to go—for PCs or Macs®. And because the NTFS drivers for Mac are included you can store and access your files on your PC and Mac without reformatting the drive. It’s USB 3.0- and USB 2.0-compatible, for speed and convenience. It also comes with its own pre-loaded backup-and-share application; so there’s no need to buy extra hardware or software.
    • Smart Storage

      Today’s Ultrabooks™ and mobile devices can often benefit from external storage. And everyone should have a backup solution. The Canvio® Connect steps right in, offering up to an incredible two terabytes (2TB) of capacity to hold a ton of your important documents, digital memories and entertainment—all in one convenient place.
    • Assurance Times Two

      Like all Toshiba products, the Canvio® Connect portable hard drive is designed from the ground up with your needs in mind, then tested again and again for reliability. You can count on it to perform as advertised—every time. That’s why it comes with a solid two-year limited warranty.

    • 1 One Gigabyte (1GB) means 109 = 1,000,000,000 bytes and One Terabyte (1TB) means 1012 = 1,000,000,000,000 bytes using powers of 10. A computer operating system, however, reports storage capacity using powers of 2 for the definition of 1GB= 230 = 1,073,741,824 bytes and 1TB = 240 = 1,099,511,627,776 bytes, and therefore shows less storage capacity. Available storage capacity (including examples of various media files) will vary based on file size, formatting, settings, software and operating system and other factors.
      2 The preloaded NTI Backup Now EZ software is compatible with Windows® OS only.
      3 Free 30-day trial of cloud backup included.
      4 Reformatting to HFS+ required for use with Time Machine® software.
      5 Includes free downloadable copy of Pogoplug® PC with 10GB of free cloud storage. Internet connection required for remote access
