Windows 7: OneDrive now supports 10 GB files

OneDrive now supports 10 GB files

Our goal with OneDrive is to provide a single place for you to store and share all the files in your life, regardless of their number or size. That’s why we’re excited to make it possible for you to store larger files, get them into OneDrive more quickly, and share them easily.

Larger file support

As the first step toward ensuring our customers have ample space, we recently increased our free storage plan to 15 GB and the storage for Office 365 customers to 1 TB. We also dropped the prices of all our storage plans.

As a follow up, we’re excited to announce that you can now upload files up to 10 GB using the desktop apps for Windows and Mac, all of the mobile apps, and the OneDrive website! We recognized that people not only have more files than they did before, but they have bigger files as well. This is a top feature request we’ve received and we’re excited to deliver it!

We’re also working on enabling this for our business customers and we’ll let you know when it’s available.

Faster syncing

As part of our push to continue improving the OneDrive desktop experience, we’ve increased the number of files that can be downloaded or uploaded at a given time on PCs and Macs. In internal tests, this parallel syncing netted an approximately threefold increase in syncing speed. Our performance enhancements have begun rolling out and will be available worldwide in the coming weeks.

Easier sharing straight from Windows Explorer

We are thrilled to deliver another top feature request that gives people who use Windows 7 and 8 the ability to quickly get links to content in their OneDrive folder without needing to go to the web. By simply right-clicking the item or items you’d like to share, you’ll see a “Share a OneDrive link” option that will create a sharing link and add it to your Clipboard. From there, you can paste it directly into an email, IM, or other message. This feature has begun rolling out to OneDrive on Windows 7 and 8 and will be available worldwide within a few weeks. We’ll update you as this becomes available on Windows 8.1 and Mac.

Folder uploads via

While today’s announcements mostly feature improvements to the desktop experience, there’s one more popular feature request we received for the OneDrive website. We’re pleased to announce that today we’re releasing the ability for you to drag folders directly into from browsers where folder dragging/dropping is supported (specifically Google Chrome).

We hope you are as excited by these improvements to OneDrive as we are. As always, please feel free to provide feedback on any features you’d love to see!

It truly is.

Since I have a Lumia (520) my total free OneDrive space is 18GB; after some consideration I've decided to make more use of that space and store a copy of some of the stuff from my music collection I listen to the most - in a low bitrate, streamable format that I can access from my phone and quickly play instead of bothering with syncing part of my library with the PC. 18GB at a music streaming-bitrate format (such as HE-AAC) is a lot.
