Toshiba has added a 4TB option to its family of CANVIO external hard drives (HDDs).
The 4TB option gives up to 33 percent extra storage (compared to 3TB) for consumers and small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). Using 1TB platter technology allows the 4TB CANVIO models to maintain the same low-profile design as 3TB models. All models support Windows and Macoperating systems and are compatible with both USB 3.0 and USB 2.0.
CANVIO HDDs combine a slim design with practical features such as a ramp-load design to prevent internal wear, plug-and-play functionality, backup and security software (available on the Advance models), and a range of more flexible capacity options of 1TB, 2TB, and now 4TB.
The 4TB BASICS model is available now. General availability of the 4TB ADVANCE and 4TB READY models will start in January 2019.
