Remove 20,000 files limit for normal onedrive as well
file and folder limit of onedrive should be expand dramatically or completly removed, so one can use it to backup things large in volume not size. Like Photos libraries where I have already 20+ thousand photos so I canot back them up there
Hey, it sounds like you’ve hit a bug — OneDrive doesn’t have a limit on the number of photos you can store. If you’re seeing this limit, can you submit a problem report through the website and we’ll take a look?
Douglas Pearce: Wouldn't it serve a great many more people, and allow OneDrive to be become a serious competitor in the cloud storage market, if you put your efforts into eliminating the file number limit for ALL file types instead of addressing a suspected software bug for just photos? After all, this particular forum page is about a file number limit that seems to eliminate the real value of purchasing extra storage from OneDrive, where photo files was used as an example of this limitation. Why would anyone purchase an advertised amount of cloud storage space with such a limitation?

Well I used to have problem when I wanted to backup my Photo library consisting mostly of .raw files, I try to backup them now and see what happens

We have OneDrive for Business as of Feb 2015 and still has a 20,000 file limit, BUT we get 1TB per user.. Completely pointless to have a file limit but provide 1TB of space..
This needs to be redone to allow for 1TB regardless of how many files/folders etc...

Indeed the OneDrive for Business (not one Drive Personal) limit of 20000 files makes the 1TB of space available via many Office 365 a laughable marketing ploy at best. That's an average of 50MB per file. Open any typical large directory of your working files and see how many come close to that value. The 1TB come on is purely hype for nearly anyone trying to use it.
Normal OneDrive (consumer OneDrive) does not have a 20,000 files limit. I personally have more than 20,000 files stored in OneDrive.
OneDrive for Business has a limit of 20,000 items. Those of you who are expressing that you have more than that are using OneDrive consumer version. It is a real issue if you have business media files, or retention of client documents. Hopefully it will be fixed.
Also, there are lots of file extensions that can be stored on a Windows PC, but that OneDrive for Business doesn't understand. Anything on a PC should be understood by OneDrive for Business - my wish.
Hopefully OneDrive For Business will be able to sync OneNote notebooks too. Works on consumer OneDrive, doesn't seem too do well on OneDrive for Business.

Does this limit still exist or not? Can someone from MS confirm this please?
I'm not sure what you're talking about. I have over 110 thousand files in my onedrive...

I have the unlimited OneDrive and 80.008 ítems. I think the limit does not exist now.

I think that it is very odd to offer "unlimited" size for Onedrive for Office365 users, without lifting the 20K items limit. In most cases you can't even get to the old 1TB with 20K, so 'unimited' is just an empty marketing gesture.
