Microsoft will soon allow you to upload even larger files to OneDrive, Teams, and SharePoint, increasing the limit from 100GB to 250GB. The larger file size limit may be good news for people who work from home because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and have to upload large projects like 4K and 8K video, CAD files, or scientific datasets to the cloud so they can be shared with colleagues and customers. According to Microsoft, the change will also be transferred to OneDrive for personal use, which could make it easier for you to upload large photo or video collections.
Microsoft says the 250GB upload limit for file size will begin at the end of January. The company expects the new limit to be widely available by the end of this quarter.
This is Microsoft’s second recent increase in file uploading: the company increased it from 15GB to 100GB last July.
