1TB Toshiba Canvio backup solution for easy mobile storage : According to new research, Americans worry more about losing their digital valuables, such as family photos, home videos and important documents, from a computer crash than having a wallet lost or stolen and being audited by the IRS. In response, Toshiba introduced the Canvio portable hard drive backup solution product line, an easy-to-use computer backup solution with up to 1TB (terabyte) of storage capacity to protect the enormous amounts of digital content Americans are creating and storing on home computers. According to the recent survey conducted by Impulse Research and sponsored by Toshiba, 70 percent of Americans have lost some type of data on their computers. |

The vast majority (89 percent) of consumers is aware of the importance of regularly backing up their computers to avoid losses; however, most (57 percent) never back up or only do it when they think of it. Toshiba designed and introduced the Toshiba Canvio Portable Hard Drive backup-solution to help consumers make protecting their digital memories an uncomplicated and regular practice. The Canvio appeals to consumers with diverse digital comfort levels - it's easy to use with simple plug-and-play operation for novices and offers customizable options for tech-savvy users.
Toshiba backup solution of up to 1TB storage
The stylish Toshiba Canvio product line comes in five colors and four storage capacities, ranging from 500GB to 1TB. At the top capacity, the Canvio holds up to 285,000 digital photos, 263,000 digital music files, or 820 digital movies. Consumers can easily back up entire music, photo or home video libraries with this vast amount of storage space. Smaller than a postcard and weighing about six ounces, the Toshiba Canvio is portable, providing a great emergency solution for saving digital memories in the event of a home catastrophe. In fact, survey respondents ranked their digital memories third in a list of items they would take with them in the event of a home evacuation, excluding family members and pets - only behind money and family photos.

Fear of losing computer data (cited by 42 percent of respondents) ranked just under fear of being laid off (46 percent) - a telling statement in this economy.

Women, in particular, are concerned about the security of family memories - 78 percent of women respondents indicated they are primarily responsible for maintaining family records and memories to pass down to future generations. These "chief memory officers" say that family videos and photos, as well as ancestor photos, are the most precious memories they have.
