JAPANESE HARDWARE FIRM Toshiba announced what it claims is its thinnest portable hard drive yet.
Offering 500GB of storage and USB 3.0 connectivity, Toshiba's strangely named Stor.e hard drive measures 107x75x9mm. It also has a brushed aluminium finish to appeal to customers wanting a stylish design.
As you might expect from an external hard drive, the Stor.e comes bundled with data protection to back up important files as well as plug and play technology so users can back up valuable data quickly and easily.
Users can also choose between backing up files to the HDD, the cloud, or to a PC while using the device to ensure that there's a slim chance of important files getting lost forever. The Stor.e Slim is also password protected for added storage security.
Toshiba says the drive will ship with its NTI Backup Now EZ software preloaded, which scans the computer system and recommends the best coverage for your computer.
Able to run on Windows or Apple Mac OS X PC operating systems, the Stor.e will be available in black or silver when it launches later this month across Europe, the Middle East and Africa. µ
