Here comes some good news for Microsoft OneDrive users. The file size limit has been increased to 10GB from 2GB. But customers who are using the cloud service for business purposes will have to wait a little longer as Microsoft has not added the new features for their business edition, as of now.
In an official blog post, group program manager of OneDrive, Jason Moore, has announced, users \”can now upload files up to 10GB using the desktop apps for Windows and Mac, all of the mobile apps, and the OneDrive Website.” This step has been taken at a time when data security is in focus all across the globe. A new key has been created for each encrypted session in the cloud drive. The latest update also includes another improvement as written by Moore, that Microsoft has \”increased the number of files that can be downloaded or uploaded at a given time on PCs and Macs.”
One most famous feature of Dropbox has been integrated into OneDrive too. As Moore posts in his blog, \”By simply right-clicking the item or items you\’d like to share, you\’ll see a \’Share a OneDrive link\’ option [in Windows Explorer\’s context menu] that will create a sharing link and add it to your Clipboard.\” The feature is underway to go live for OneDrive, for Windows 7 and 8 versions. The feature will be compatible with Windows 8.1 and Mac versions too, in future. It means users will find it easier to upload folders to the OneDrive Web interface from now onwards.
