Toshiba Bundling NTI Backup Now EZ with Canvio V6 USB 3.0 HDDs

Toshiba announced the inclusion of NTI- a new cloud version of award-winning Backup Now EZ software in its Canvio 3.0 USB HDD. Toshiba's new high capacity Canvio 3.0 USB hard drives are the first-to-market with NTI Backup Now EZ software pre-installed for simple activation by consumers. Backup Now EZ scans your computer and recommends the best backup options. You then decide between backing up your files to the Toshiba Canvio, to online storage at NTI Cloud, or choose both for the most comprehensive coverage. The software also includes Drive Space Alert that monitors local drives and announces when the drive is getting close to full.

New benefits include online backup options plus step-by-step and customizable backup capabilities. Backup options include the ability to backup a complete PC and/or just selected files and folders. Plus, with the added cloud storage users have peace of mind with access to their data anytime, anywhere they are internet connected.

NTI Cloud starts online storage with a free 30-day trial and $1/GB per month in 5GB or 10GB increments thereafter. Users are offered the option to dynamically grow the online portion as needed.

They can keep this useless "I want to register continuously" software, too slow, as nice as the features is I have uninstalled it, connected a wd laptop external drive and used the free Acronis TIH to backup.

PS> the Cavio blue plastic outside scratches easily so your new device will look 6 months old. Also trying to format / un "BS" the Cavio drive is a major pain and does not work with Mac Book Pro's where WD 2.5" 1tb does in USB2.0 mode.

Same problem with the WD software that comes with the WD external drives as backup software, takes ages instead of Acronis TIH that take 15 mins max for full hd image.

NTI Toshiba┬┤s back up software

Terrible... super slow.... slowed down my computer for days... it is NOT user friendly. Does not allow you to easily STOP a back up. Does not back up my documents on my D drive, only C drive. Useless piece of "you know what". Waste of money!!!!
:banghead:

DO NOT BUY!!!!!

Or if you do... DO NOT USE their software. Manually back up everything yourself.
