OneDrive Receives Big Update from Microsoft
Jeremy Tate / 2 years ago
Microsoft’s OneDrive cloud storage service has been lagging behind competitors in terms of upload functionality and file size limits for a while now. With the hotly contested cloud storage industry in tightly locked competition, Microsoft have finally upped their game – offering the ability to sync files that are larger than 2GB in size, as well as having a new file size limit of 10GB. Whilst that maximum file size won’t fit a massive video file, it’ll surely be adequate enough for most who are using the service.
On top of the update, Microsoft’s expanded the functionality of uploads – which now allows desktop clients to easily share files stored on OneDrive with other people through the use of a simple right click of a file. It’ll allow you to email the file, tweet or pass around a direct link to your upload. On top of this, the OneDrive Web interface has been given a fresh coat of paint – and now allows Chrome users the ability to upload entire folders directly into OneDrive. In the past, Chrome users would be forced to upload files individually to the service – not only creating major headaches for Chrome users, but also making the OneDrive service far inferior to the likes of major competitors such as DropBox.
