Welcome to CSR Nation
I know I'm behind the times, but I've been paying RealLegal $25 a month for years simply to send my scopists WAV files. I don't really use it as a storage facility. Does anyone have any recommendations for an easy and free way to upload WAV files for my scopists to retrieve?

T3, Total Transcript Transfer charges 25 I think and that is who I use. It's either 25 or 15, forget which, but I love their software. Wouldn't use anything else. Sorry, but I don't trust free when you are working on a daily and it may not work.
I think DropBox may have a free way to send audio files, though. Also YouSendIt.com, etc.
I also use T3, I'm on the $9.95/month plan and have NEVER had issues....It's worth it just for peace of mind, and I think I can use up to three or five scopists? I only have two that I use currently, but never had an issue and would HIGHLY recommend..
I've used www.sendthisfile.com for several years. Always the free version.
Last year, I upgraded to the $49 per year plan just to get the files through a little faster and have no ads and be able to customize some of the settings like getting an email when the recipient downloads the file. I can also now send more than one file at a time (up to five) in one transfer... it may be more.
I'm very happy with it.
I also use T3, but there are now more and more law offices that block large file transfers being sent from their location. I've been able to get around the issue by using Dropbox. I copy the files into my desktop Dropbox folder, and my scopist is able to go in there and download it. I've had no reliability issues with Dropbox, but have had many issues with other file transfer programs. I tried the free sendthisfile and yousendit, etc., and they slow down the transfer rate for the free service to the point it's not functional for large wav files. That's been my experience, anyway.
I'm glad I'm not the only one that couldn't figure out Dropbox.
Myotherdrive sounds interesting. I'm checking with myotherdrive to see if they are archival (will hold files you have deleted from the computer you are using) so that you could transfer .wav files for transcripts you have produced and get them off your main computer. I use carbonite, but it's not archival. To be able to use it to transfer files and backup could be ideal.
