Microsoft OneDrive users can now upload file up to 100 gigs by updating it to the latest version
Microsoft OneDrive is a file hosting service and synchronization service operated by the company as part of its web version of Office. OneDrive allows users to store files and personal data like Windows settings or BitLocker recovery keys in the cloud, share files, and sync files across Android, Windows Phone, and iOS mobile devices, Windows and macOS computers, and the Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles. Users can also upload Microsoft Office documents to OneDrive.
The company has introduced overnight the latest version of the OneDrive which will now support upload file size up to 100GB in OneDrive and SharePoint. Previously the service only provided 15GB of upload file size. ” Everything has moved online, accelerating our digital transformation both professionally and personally. We not only need the right apps to stay productive while working remotely, but we also need the right apps to stay connected with family and friends.” Microsoft
It’s a useful addition for business users of OneDrive who have been restricted to 15GB files, making it difficult to sync some large file types like CAD or video files. OneDrive for Business users will also soon be getting better Teams sharing integration. You’ll be able to share a file within Teams and be presented with an option to create a shared link that allows files and documents to be shared strictly within a company or to anyone.
Moreover, the company will soon allow users to change OneDrive’s Theme to dark mode, as it will be available for the web across commercial and personal accounts. Microsoft is also adding one of the key parts of OneDrive file sharing with a new “Add to OneDrive” button. However, the business users will be able to preview this new button later this month, and it will allow you to easily add shared folders directly into your own OneDrive.
Over the next few weeks, Microsoft will release an update to the OneDrive sync app, which will allow it to support read and write sync for shared libraries that contain required metadata. Currently, shared libraries with mandatory metadata are synchronized as read-only.
