Microsoft increases OneDrive upload file size limit, no longer capped at 2GB

Microsoft has increased the OneDrive file size upload limit from 2GB to an unspecified new maximum, a new report suggests today. Microsoft has also issued a statement confirming the change, but an official announcement has yet to take place.

"As we mentioned on our uservoice, we have started the work to increase the file size limit for all OneDrive accounts," a Microsoft spokesperson said. "We have started the process with a small number of customers and will continue to roll it out to our full customer base. We will have more to share on this update in the near future, stay tuned to the OneDrive blog."

This change was first reported by a user on Reddit, and multiple replies to the site as well as Microsoft's statement confirmed the upload limit increase. It is Labor Day in the United States right now, so we expect an official blog post highlighting this new change to go live likely tomorrow or later this week.

We're not sure exactly what the new upload limit is, considering Dropbox has an upload limit of 10GB while Google Drive allows you to upload a file 5TB in size! Head over to OneDrive and take this new feature for a test drive. Let us know if you are noticing this new feature. We're sure it will be a gradual roll out, so be patient!

Thanks for sending this in, David!
