Microsoft has now officially announced it has increased the file size limit on its OneDrive cloud storage service from 2 GB to 10 GB. The file size increase was noted by some OneDrive users a couple of weeks ago but today Microsoft confirmed the boost.
In addition, Microsoft is rolling out some more OneDrive improvements for PC and Mac users, increasing the number of files that can be uploaded or downloaded at one time. Microsoft said, "In internal tests, this parallel syncing netted an approximately threefold increase in syncing speed."
Windows 7 and 8 owners will also see another new feature in the next few weeks that will allow them to share files without having to go to the OneDrive.com site. Microsoft says, "By simply right-clicking the item or items you'd like to share, you'll see a 'Share a OneDrive link' option that will create a sharing link and add it to your Clipboard. From there, you can paste it directly into an email, IM, or other message." This feature will apparently be added for Windows 8.1 and Mac users at some point in the future.
Finally, Microsoft stated, "We're pleased to announce that today we're releasing the ability for you to drag folders directly into OneDrive.com from browsers where folder dragging/dropping is supported (specifically Google Chrome)." What do you think of these additions and improvements?
