Most consumers who own an external hard drive balk at buying a second external drive just to back up the data on their first one, so Toshiba has added a cloud-based backup system to its Canvio line of external hard drives. Users can specify folders or certain file types (such as pictures), which are then copied automatically to cloud servers.

Product: Canvio 3.0 Portable Hard Drive
Cost: $90 to $140
Availability: Now
