The paid version of Dropbox's cloud storage service has just gotten a huge capacity upgrade. According to the official Dropbox blog, Dropbox Pro is now available as a single 1TB plan priced at $9.99 a month.
Before today, there were three Dropbox Pro tiers: 100GB for $9.99 a month, 200GB for $19.99, and 500GB for $49.99. Then, as now, paying yearly instead of monthly unlocked a 17% discount, which knocked down the price of the lowest tier to $100 a year. That hundred bucks now gets you a terabyte of cloud storage.
Along with the capacity increase, Dropbox Pro has gotten some extra features. The blog post talks about new sharing controls that let users set passwords, expiration dates, and permissions for shared files and folders. There's also a new "remote wipe" option that can erase Dropbox files on a lost device—without deleting those files in the cloud, of course.
The 1TB plan is now priced right in line with Google 1TB Drive service, which makes it pretty competitive. Too bad the free version of Dropbox is still limited to 2GB of storage. Both Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive serve up 15GB for free.
