    Hi Peeps,
    I just learned today that in some law firms there is a practice to pull files from boxes, destroy the files, and then reuse the same barcode/box. In my two plus decades of RM, I've never heard of this being done regardless of industry and my training say this is not a best practice. I'd love to hear from law firms why this practice is held to better understand and to learn the reasoning behind it. I'd also love to hear the opposition as to why this shouldn't be. (perfect time to educate, imo)
