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.
We have increased our file upload size to 15 GB. We continually monitor and respond to the needs of our customers.
I've got 1TB storage space. It's a bit strange I can't upload anything bigger than 10 gb.

# Regarding the filesize limits available when using the Onedrive via the browser.
Hello, please correct file limits available on your storage service OneDrive!
Today there is a limit to how for how large a file MAX can be, it is currently at 10GB for each file, while Google Drive has a limitation of 5TB of each file .... which is huge. I think it's lousy that such a large company like Microsoft can not have similar restrictions on their storage service Google Drive?
# Regarding the restrictions applicable downloading files from the web browser:
There is also a restriction on how much many GB which can be downloaded from OneDrive via The web browser. Today it is 4 GB, which means that if you have files that you want to download is larger than 4 GB, you must have access to a computer where the local OneDrive folder is stored. It's lousy, it's 2015, not in 2005.
# Regarding OneDrive client:
You should begin to use the P2P protocol to increase speeds of up down and uploads between Ondrive and the computer.
I need to store Virtual Machines. This is the only thing stopping me moving to Office 365
Yes this would be a feature I would really love since I do a lot of video production whereby my files are 20-30 GB each file. Currently I am forced to use USB Flash Drives and Google Drive.

Throwing my 3 votes into the ring. As the head of a media production company, I have many raw video files that exceed 10GB. I'm currently using another not-to-be-named service (that allows 5TB uploads) to store my files, and this is the only thing holding me back from switching to 365 and OneDrive, which I would much prefer. Yes, archiving is possible, but I'd prefer to avoid as many extra steps as possible.

Please Microsoft, make it possibel for us all to upload more than 10gig in one file. This would be great for us all
I'm chiming in here because it's getting old having to use 7zip to split files--especially when that file is just above the 10GB mark. Until the team can get delta sync (block-level) going, at least incremental jumps of the limit would be appreciated. (Say, upping the max to 15GB or 20GB in the next few months, then up to 50GB...)
Christopher Wilkinson commented
For now you could use 7zip (or equivalent) and split the file into 10GB chunks to upload
Brendon Morgan commented
Pretty sure this is going to be impossible even if they did allow files up to 1TB due to the fact that there is no block level upload.
Meaning that if the file changes at all then the whole thing has to be re-uploaded, not just the changes.
Once they allow block level incremental file uploads this might be something to request.
Duplicated, yes, but seems to be more feasible. Hopefully the OneDrive team can change to "Working About It" soon.
I would love this so that there is no good reason to use Google Drive or Dropbox (slow, expensive).

+1, Need to back up VMs, videos from vacations, video projects for personal business
Agreed, Dropbox has no file size limitation and it's the only reason I have not switched to OneDrive for all my online storage needs.
Brian Stebar commented
Storing VMs or large disc images is impossible with the 10GB file size limit.
The biggest issue is the first file load... It is great to have a FTP tool like (SmartFTP) to make it happen
I still have quite some videos greater than 10GB. Google Drive's 5TB limit is more reasonable, and that will probably serve the majority of us for the next ten to twenty years. Of course no limit is the best (modern filesystems have limits so high that I can safely call them "no limit" throughout my lifetime).

yes, please! 1TB at least (you have to compete with Google I think, they have 5TB limit atm)

I bought Office 365 so that I can get araid from my external HDD.
At the moment its not possible at all, because there are several files which are greater than 10 GB.
These files are HD Movies or huge archives which are around 20 GB.
But it would be great if I cloud also backup my VHD files on OneDrive to have all on one place.
Whats the idea behind this file size limit? Is it a technical reason or another one?
