Canvio Hard Drives

The Canvio hard drives are available in 500 GB, 750 GB and 1 TB. These hard drives also come with a user interface to help customers access the cloud for storage. Once the customers plug in the Canvio hard drive they will get an option to make an account with BackupNow EZ which is run by Microsoft Azure. After making the account the user can select the files he/she wants to store in the cloud.

This service is not free. A 30-day free period will be given to all the Canvio owners but after that payment will be required to store data in the cloud. The Canvio can also be used as bootable drive in case the computer crashes. Canvio is protected from daily movement when placed in pocket, bag or desk. Canvio 3.0 costs $89.99 for 500GB and $139.00 for 1TB model.
