Skydrive Team Looking To Increase 2GB File Size Limit

Omar Shahine and Mona Akmal from the SkyDrive team held an AMA on reddit answering user questions.  We’ll be sharing any interesting tidbits.

Shahine commented on increasing the 2GB file size limit on Skydrive

This is a good one that we’d like to improve on. I can’t comment about specifics here, but it’s something we are looking at. The reason we don’t support 2 GB is that when we designed the system 7 years ago we thought 2 GB was really big. Turns out it’s not.

It looks like some significant backend changes will need to be made before they can increase the file size limimt. Shahine also discussed the possibility of adding purchasing option of greater than a 100GB total storage

 We are always looking at adding additional storage options. Can’t comment on when this might change.
