Microsoft removing 2GB limitation for file sizes in OneDrive

Microsoft removing 2GB limitation for file sizes in OneDrive
Microsoft has quietly begun dropping the 2GB file size limit for its OneDrive cloud storage service.

Last month, Microsoft group program manager Omar Shahine confirmed that the limit was to be removed in the near future, saying "It's not arbitrary. It's simply an old limit that we've been working on removing for far too long now. The good news is that we are actively working on this."

Currently, the the limits are being removed, but it will be a slow rollout.

"As we mentioned on our UserVoice, we have started the work to increase the file size limit for all OneDrive accounts. We have started the process with a small number of customers and will continue to roll it out to our full customer base. We will have more to share on this update in the near future, stay tuned to the OneDrive blog," says Microsoft.

All free OneDrive accounts have 15GB free storage.

    2GB limits are lame and nothing more than blanket policies for the prevention of uploading movies and software like Creative Suites.

    I love my Skydrive. 25GB as I was one of the first.
