Microsoft increases the OneDrive file size limit to 250GB.
Despite not having the popularity of other similar services, Microsoft has made OneDrive a very interesting option, the company increases the file size limit to 250GB. And, as with Google Drive and G-Suite, the integration between the cloud and Office Online makes Microsoft’s online platform a great solution, both for individual users and for independent professionals and SMEs.
Microsoft increases file size limit for OneDrive to 250GB
Until July of last year, there was a limitation on the maximum size of the files that could be uploaded to OneDrive, which in no case could exceed 15GB. However, along with other changes that we have already mentioned, at that time they made a significant jump to 100GB.
However, at the request of users of the service, the company decided to increase the maximum size of files that can be uploaded to the cloud, setting the new maximum limit at no less than 250GB. However, this increase will only be available to users with Microsoft 365 Personal and Microsoft 365 Family.
You’ll be able to upload up to 250GB files to OneDrive
With this increase, which in addition to OneDrive also applies to Microsoft Teams and SharePoint, it should be understood that even large datasets or videos in 4K and 8K resolutions are fully covered, and therefore no more news in this regard can be expected for quite some time. However, we are still far from reaching the limit set by NTFS in its current implementation, that is, around 17.59TB
OneDrive file size limit is increased to 250GB and this feature will be available at the end of January.
