Awesome to see all the competition that came out since I first made this thread.

I still like dropbox the best, however.

Anywho, bump for those going into finals and whatnot.

Used Google Drive since 1L year (almost done 3L) and it's so great. Being able to look at pretty much any file I ever had in law school on my phone at any time came in handy so many times.

FWIW I still use Dropbox for personal stuff but have used Google Drive a lot in the past year for school projects, and it works great. I haven't found anything Dropbox can do but Drive can't. In fact, there appear to be additional functionalities on Drive, like the ability to use and share in the same folder Google documents (docs, sheets, slides etc.).

Google Drive doesn't have a local folder, does it? Dropbox and OneDrive are nice in that you can work offline and the next time your computer gets internet, the online copies update.

I'm pretty sure it does; I have a local alias to my Google Drive that I can access even while I'm offline.

Yes, you can set up a local folder on your desktop. It will synch with the cloud automatically, like Dropbox. Install the desktop app here:
