  • Password-protected data encryption keeps your files secure.  Up to 256-bit encryption helps prevent unauthorized access to your files.

  • Lightweight, pocket-sized drive is easily portable.  Drive is USB powered — there's just 1 cable connection. User interface is simple and intuitive.
  • Cloud storage option lets you access your files online from anywhere.  Also great for sharing files or folders online with others. Includes download of Pogoplug PC® software with 10GB of cloud storage. Internet connection required. (Note: Cloud storage is free for 30 days.)

(Backup software (included) is for Windows only. If you wish to use the Time Machine® software for Mac, you will need to reformat the drive.)

Toshiba Canvio� Connect Portable USB 3.0 Hard Drive, 2TB, Black 4.3 5 7 7
May need powered hub to work I picked this up to create a backup of my SSD drive before flashing the firmware, and begin scheduled backups on all of my PCs. As there is a nasty ransomware scheme out there (encrypts your drive and then you have to pay $300 to get the key to unlock it... a system restore from a backup can circumvent that), I thought this would be the thing to do. Too many people believe a catastrophic failure will not happen to them. Bewlive me, it will happen someday! I just helped a friend put in a new hard drive, but as she had no backups, her data was gone, as was her restore partition. Use a free tool (Todo backup Home), the native Windows 7 backup, Acronis, or something that comes with the drive to create an image. Then set up regular incremental backups to catch changes alonge the way.. Be sure to have a backup plan and stick to it! Anyway, I had trouble getting my desktop or laptop to recognize the Toshiba Canvio Connect drive. I took it back to the store and was able to see it on a laptop at the Office Depot where I got it. There is a fine print notice on the side of the box: "For the few computers that limit bus power, a special USB power cable is required," So I tried a USB 2.0 hub with a 5V adapter that I had, and the drive worked like a charm on my laptop, although at 2.0 speed (the LED will be white when it is connected at USB 2.0 and blue when connected at USB 3.0. There is no blue USB connection on my laptop.) I have a 500GB Toshiba Canvio Basics Standard, which did not have the problem that the Connect model has. I will be looking for a USB 3.0 hub with a power adapter so that I can access it on my laptop. Update: My desktop has a blue USB 3.0 hub on the front of the case. (You have to have a 3.0 port to get 3.0 speeds.) I was able to connect the drive directly to the blue USB 3.0 port, but had to assign a drive letter (T:) under computer management in Administrative tools. Looking back, I may have not waited long enough for the drive to download the included drivers on my desktop machine, but it does show up (as the T: drive assigned previously). I have to have a powered hub to even see the drive on my laptop (no drive designation required.) March 6, 2014
Great item for the price It works as expected. Got this one on sale when I was looking for a 2TB portable drive under $100, and here it is. February 22, 2014
Goog buy I backed up two computers and still have room to "grow". February 18, 2014
Great Product Great product for a really good price December 29, 2013

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
