Remove the File size limit of 2GB for syncing.
There are numerous files that can exceed this file size. Especially if you're syncing family videos, large CAD files, or perhaps digital art files. This makes OneDrive not very useful for my purposes, and others I suspect.
I heard back in 2012 that this was something that the OneDrive team wanted to do but I haven't heard an update on this since then. Please let us know what's going on with this.
We’re proud to announce OneDrive now supports up to 10 GB files.
You can read more on our blog here: https://blog.onedrive.com/onedrive-now-supports-10-gb-files/
what about the number of files limit?
Why is this not available on all your products? I am on OneDrive for Business and it's giving me this message
"You can't upload files larger than 2.1GB to your OneDrive for Business"
You would think that for business accounts, this restriction would also be lifted.
When is this going to get fixed??

Tried upload a simple zip file with 4,5GB and I'm not able to.

I am STILL getting that message. I am trying to sync a secure file that has many smaller files within it but ONEDRIVE says it won't sync because it's over 2 gig. POSTED 3/3/2015
We're using the one drive for business preview for Mac. Any ideas when the limit will be extended to 10GB?
Remove the File size limit of 10GB for syncing.
Some (like me) have files even larger than 10GB. Please remove this limit as well.
split a huge file to small files will do the the trick
My music is simply not uploading..... it sits in a "waiting" position and then nothing happens. It does not tell me that anything is too big and does not give an error message. HELP!!
Um, right step, now it would be great to have the 10GB limit removed ;)
How can be solved a problem of downloading to my iPad a file which is 2.7 GB via onedrive app? It is telling me that files which are more than 500 mb cannot be downloaded.
I get the file too big error as well. Still showing 2gb threshold om consumer account.

I still get 'File is too big' sync error on files bigger than 2GB. When will the limit increase available for all OneDrive (not for business) users??? I've more than 1TB space on OneDrive but it can't upload a 2.5GB long video file???

I still get sync problem with file bigger than 2GB: ("Files can't be larger than 2 GB. Please reduce the size of the file to upload it to OneDrive, or move it to a different location on this PC.".
So when will this upgrade available for all users???
So this is only for onedrive not for SharePoint online correct?
Very nice. That's about time !!!
@Brock - you are correct - we are working on bringing this update to our commercial customers. For tracking purposes, could you submit another idea under "OneDrive for Business" category; I'll mark it as Started and merge any future dupes into that one. Thanks

This does not apply to business users yet so it is not really complete then right? The blog itself says that you are still working on this feature for OneDrive for Business.
Great job MS! You finally achieved what DropBox and Google accomplished 4 years ago. Sure, Google's limit is now 5TB, which will take you another 4 years to match, but no biggie. We'll keep supporting you, just like we do Windows Phone.

Congrats on bringing the file limit up to 10GB. Thank you for working on this and removing the 2GB file size limit. Keep this stuff coming!! :-)
It seems my new limit is 10GB: "Files must be less than 10 GB in size to be uploaded to OneDrive." I hope this 10GB limit can still be increased. Unlimited file size would be the best.
