As part of uLawPractice's 2017 review of cloud storage services available to lawyers, we're going to put Dropbox under the microscope to view whether it's a worthy service for you to use in your day-to-day business dealings.
Lawyers are jumping on board to use this service, and in large numbers. According to ABA, 58 per cent of U.S.-based lawyers are already using this service.
Given its age, Dropbox has had a lot of time to mature and in some respects it's become a household name in the world of cloud storage, especially with its integrated software-driven approach to storage.
Dropbox is polished. It's a system that works quite well across multiple platforms. And because of this, it's often used as a file transfer system between computers and smartphones.
It's also pretty cheap. Currently the service offers 2GB for free, but users are given the choice to purchase 1TB of storage for $100 USD per year--a fair price for remote and secure storage of important files.
