I suggest you ...

Allow files of any size to be uploaded and synced

As much as I appreciate the hard work of the Onedrive team for removing the 2GB file size limit and pushing the limit to 10GB, I was really hoping for an unlimited file size when syncing from the desktop or other localized app. I might be an edge case, but I use a competitor to sync VHD's (Virtual Hard Drives) that I use for various purposes and those are far larger than 10GB.

        10GB file size limit is ridiculous! OneDrive is stuck in 2008.

        Yeah this seems a bit silly given the options elsewhere... I have backed Onedrive for a long time, but more and more it seems like Google or Dropbox are better options due to oversights such as this

        You're not an edge case. I want to fill up my 5 TB. It's a pain in the butt to migrate to ODFB from our local shares because I can't just drag and drop them in to the cloud.

        Dropbox has no file upload size limitations when using their app. Only a limit when using a web-browser to upload and even then that is 20GB. Should be able to match that Microsoft!

        Any updates on this? If not unlimited, how about 5tb (like Google)?

        10tb limit is quickly becoming unrealistic, especially given the size of certain files (4k clips, etc).

        Can you give us a status update, at the very least?

        Gents at MS, please take this issue as a very serious one! at least give a workaround for it.

        In my PC (windows 10) I moved all my files from my documents into ONEdrive in hopes that all work will be synched up. When I did this, I got the error saying "files bigger than 10 g can't be synched" What happens to those files? Are they somehow marked for me? When I want to get a new computer, what do I have to do so I don't lose them?

        I'm evaluating Google Drive or Dropbox because I'm tired of waiting and I need a storage in which I can upload files of more than 10 GB... Is there any news about this that might give us any hope?
        Thank you.

        Why is this still at this pathetic limit? I can certainly say that if this is not fixed by the time my 1TB runs out I will not be continuing my subscription. I would rather pay someone else that would allow me to upload file sizes of any amount. Or at least something like google drive with a 5TB limit.

        Considering you were thinking about it almost 2 years ago this is just a farce. Do something about it. Or lose your customers, your choice.

        My Outlook .pst file has now grown to over 10GB and I can no longer synchronise my Microsoft Outlook Archive with OneDrive, even though I'm an Office 365 Subscriber and I have the 1TB total limit in OneDrive. C'mon Microsoft, if you can't make the file size 'unlimited' at least allow people to request an increase to 20GB or similar in the short term...

        That's important for me too. I have a couple of software instruments and ISO files I'd like to store on OneDrive. Unfortunately, that's currently not possible.

        I was unaware of the limitation until i tried to upload my digitalized super8 movies. They costed me a small fortune so i wanted to keep them safe. But i just found out it wasn't possible - without splitting the files into segments.
        It's the only thing i really find really annoying with Onedrive.

        YOU HAVE MY VOTE - What concerns me, all the commercials you see of the advertisement of successful businesses using "Microsoft Cloud" which Microsoft pays for and funds, they really bind the tech companies that need to back up VHD's (Virtual Hard Disks), executable files and Exchange Backups. Unlimited would be ideal.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        yes please, i really need this too backup my large collections. giving me this option will allow me to store more on one drive and consider buying even more storage!
