Online cloud storage services have become extremely popular and widely used after the users started working from remote locations due to the pandemic. It is one of the major reasons why most of the popular tech companies have made a lot of changes to the cloud storage offerings to the users. One such change has recently been implemented by Microsoft as well where they have increased the OneDrive file size limit to 250GB.
As per their official statement, “Our latest improvement will help increase the upload file size limit for Microsoft 365 from 100 GB to 250 GB — which includes uploads of files into SharePoint, Teams, and OneDrive.” Previously the file size limit on the OneDrive was limited to 100GB for all Microsoft 365 customers but now the support for 250GB file size will reflect in SharePoint, Teams, and OneDrive. The update is expected to be rolled out by the end of January and will be available to all users across the globe by the end of quarter 1.
The increase in the file size would be a great feature for people who have been trying to share videos in 4 o 8K resolution as they have a big file size. The company has also confirmed that they have managed to raise the upload limit by splitting each file into chunks, with each piece encrypted with a unique key. In the statement released by them, “All your files are backed up in Azure Storage, ensuring high availability and performance. You can easily upload and download your large files when you need them, where you need them“
