Works like a hard drive. Haven't got around to using it as what I intended to use it for (device to record my music to), but so far is holding the files I have on there like a champ! Using it on an iMac because those are awesome. And it works on both systems so It's a good buy.
Put peace of mind first, and make your memories last, with Toshiba's new Canvio® 3.0 portable hard drive, offering one of the simplest, most complete backup solutions in style.
Designed for those who want an easy, effective way to preserve and restore their pictures, documents, music and videos—or their entire system—the Canvio® 3.0 delivers truly comprehensive, set-and-forget data protection. Offering up to 1 terabyte of storage, and powered by USB 3.0 technology, it lets you copy even some of the largest files off your PC and onto the drive faster than ever before, or use integrated cloud backup2 capabilities for extra protection. Thanks to a special internal shock sensor and ramp loading technology to guard against accidents and drops for greater peace of mind, it's also the perfect way to share or transport your digital content, and can be used with USB 2.0 connections, too.
The 1TB Canvio is capable of storing up to 285,000 digital photos or 263,000 digital music files or 820 downloaded digital movies.
