I’ve been asking for this for 2 years and all I ever get is ‘we’ll send this to our concern team.’ Time for Microsoft to get it’s collective head out of it’s a— and provide a feature all users can use instead of fluff features that only benefit a handful of users.
Being trying for 18 months to get Microsoft to change this stupid limitation. All the other 'players' in cloud storage allow much greater limits. I can't upload a 65 GB backup file to my 1 TB account. Why not?
PS to one comment here about using WinRAR ... you're missing the point. Most backup software will split files into 'uploadable' sizes. We shouldn't have to if the file size doesn't exceed the account limit.
When is Microsoft going to get it's head out it's *** and provide users with a workable upload limit. I've commented on this for over a year.
As is typical with Microsoft, they work on features they 'think' people want and ignore the features they need. Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 is a classic example.
I pay for 1 TB of storage (through Office365) and I can't upload a 65GB backup file to my OneDrive account because of this ridiculous limitation. Why?
Move to Google Drive (5TB limit) or any one of numerous cloud storage services the understand the user's needs.
Microsoft wants to be a player in cloud storage ... what a joke!
I've made the suggestion on this post for nearly 2 years that the uploaded file size limit is ridiculous. Every time I complain to Microsoft, they 'encourage' me to post it here. What a freakin' joke!
We pay for at least 1 TB of space and then are limited to a lousy 15GB upload? Why? Of the other cloud services I've looked into, the upload limit is typically 100 GB to (in some instances) 5 TB.
Microsoft claims it's making all the features of Office 365 better and more usable.
Prove it ... change the upload limit to 100 GB. At least it would be more usable. As it is now, I pay for 1 TB and can't upload a 35 GB backup file.
Note that at least one of these posts is a year old and Microsoft hasn't done anything about this problem. They want everyone to move to Office 365 and then force them to live with a ridiculous 15 GB upload limit.
Perhaps they want everyone to switch to Google Drive (5 TB uploads) or iDrive (up to account limit uploads).
Every time I contact Microsoft it's the same thing: we'll have someone look into it. They must be the slowest tech support in the world.
Fix it or users will get tired of waiting and go elsewhere.

Google allows up to 5 TB per file. I have a 1+TB personal account and I would like to store backups on my own drive account. Now I have to have my backup program split the backup files so I can upload them. Why? Why can't I just upload the 20-25 GB file without the extra steps. If I have 1 TB to use, there shouldn't be a limitation. Surely Microsoft servers can handle the uploads.
