Microsoft will soon let you upload files up to 250GB to OneDrive, Teams, and SharePoint

You'll soon be able to store massive files across Microsoft 365 services.

What you need to know

  • Microsoft is increasing the file size limit for Microsoft 365.
  • The increased limit applies to OneDrive, Microsoft Teams, and SharePoint.
  • Microsoft optimized the storage process to be able to handle the file size increase.

With 4K videos, 8K videos, and 3-D files becoming more common, people's requirements for cloud file storage have evolved. Microsoft announced this week that it will increase the file size limit for Microsoft 365 to 250GB to meet the growing demand. The current limit is 100GB, so people will have much more room to work with after the increased limit rolls out.

 

The increased limit will come to all Microsoft 365 files, which includes OneDrive, Microsoft Teams, and SharePoint. The upload file size limit isn't just for business customers either. OneDrive for personal use also benefits from the bump up to 250GB.

 

If you've ever tried to upload a large file onto OneDrive or other Microsoft services, you might be concerned about uploading a 250GB file without running into any issues. Uploading files that large creates a longer window to run into issues, but Microsoft has optimized uploading to limit problems.

"We've achieved the 250 GB limit by optimizing storage for upload performance—each file is split into chunks and each piece is encrypted with a unique key," says Microsoft in its techcommunity post announcing the increased limit.

 

Microsoft also utilizes differential sync, which only syncs changes to files, rather than having to reupload an entirely new file each time you make any change.

 

Support for the new 250GB file size limit will roll out by the end of January.
