Microsoft begins to drop 2 GB file size limit for OneDrive
Microsoft is prepping to drop the 2GB file size limit for OneDrive. Right now a small number of users can upload files larger than 2GB in size to OneDrive. Users on Reddit were the first to notice a change, with Microsoft sharing a statement to The Next Web to confirm the file size limit changes.
Here's a statement from Microsoft on the OneDrive file size limit:
Back in April 2012 Microsoft updated the desktop app for OneDrive (then called SkyDrive). The update introduced a handful of new features, one being an increase to 2 GB for files uploaded to the cloud storage service.
Microsoft hasn't shared the new maximum file size but will most likely announce it in the near future on the OneDrive blog. For now, let's play around – tell us the biggest file you're able to upload to OneDrive.

And if it was still called SkyDrive and that there wasn't any file size limit, we'd say: "The sky's the limit!" Lol.
But good ms..
The Fappening... WOW. So when Connor McLeod opens his trench coat it isn't his katana he's whipping out?.
But I just tested trying to get the closest and I made a 9.98gb zip file and it's uploading fine. and I Just did my last test trying to upload a 10.1gb file and it said there was a problem syncing and the file was too big ;) so there you have it 10gb it's the new limit, that's what my tests told me ;)
No problem! ;D
