Microsoft increases OneDrive file size limit to 250GB
by Rich Woods
If you work with massive files, you'll be pleased to find out that Microsoft is increasing file size support in OneDrive to 250GB. The previous maximum file size was 100GB, so this makes a big difference. This includes uploads in SharePoint, OneDrive, and Teams.
At this point, you might be wondering who could possibly have files that large. If that's what you're thinking, this news obviously isn't for you. This is for people that need to store big 8K video files, 3D models, CAD files, large data sets, and more. If you're using OneDrive as a consumer, as opposed to OneDrive for Business, Microsoft uses the example of uploading a family video album or a ZIP file that has a large PC game in it.
Thanks to differential sync, it should be relatively easy to manage these files. Without it, you'd have to upload the full file size every time it's edited. Microsoft says that these large files are "split into chunks", and encrypted with a unique key. Support for the larger files will start rolling out by the end of this month with general availability by the end of the quarter.
Of course, under a normal Microsoft 365 Personal plan, you only get 1TB of storage, and while you can add to it, the consumer use case really isn't there. Having files this large in OneDrive really only makes sense in a professional capacity where it also makes sense to pay for the additional space.

Microsoft Teams recordings to be stored on OneDrive for Business and SharePoint after March 1
by Usama Jawad
Microsoft Teams recordings typically get stored on Stream, a video management platform the company launched for businesses back in 2017. The firm announced in October 2020 that it would be transitioning storage platforms to OneDrive for Business and SharePoint, and allowed Government Community Cloud (GCC) customers to opt-out as part of a phased rollout. It has now announced firm dates for this process.
Starting from January 11, GCC Teams recordings will be stored on OneDrive for Business and SharePoint unless the setting has been explicitly set to Stream. However, after March 1, no new meeting recording will be stored on Stream, even if customers have set it as their as their preference. Instead, they will be stored on OneDrive for Business and SharePoint, utilizing existing storage quotas that customers purchased for these services. As such, Microsoft has recommended that customers change their preference before March 1, so they have better control over how and where their recordings are being stored.
The Redmond tech giant has also outlined multiple advantages of this transition including easier setting of permissions and access rights, increased quota, faster availability, and support for bring your own key (BYOK), among other things.
However, there are some limitations to consider as well. Transcription for meetings is not available in GCC, with support available for English closed captioning only. Furthermore, there is no way to prevent people with access to the recordings from downloading them. Finally, customers will not receive an automated email when a recording is ready.
The company has outlined several ways to enable and disable the new storage platforms, and has also described in detail the locations at which recordings will be saved. Microsoft has emphasized that Stream will not be deprecated in the near future and current recordings will remain as-is until they are migrated to OneDrive for Business and SharePoint at a currently unannounced date.

Microsoft details the features added to OneDrive in December
by Abhay Venkatesh
As is the case every month, Microsoft has detailed the features that it added to OneDrive in December. The list this month is minor, with the most significant additions having to do with creating and managing shared libraries right from the OneDrive web client.
Users have been able to view shared libraries on the web for a while now, making it easy to access content and files shared with various teams right through the web client. Now, the firm is improving the experience of creating shared libraries from the web to make it “simpler and easier to create collaborative spaces”. It adds that the new experience will also allow for the addition of users within Office 365 groups and that the new shared libraries will appear immediately for those members.
Additionally, the web client has also gained the ability to manage files and content in shared libraries with full fidelity. Users can create new folders and documents and pin them to the top, add specific files to users’ own OneDrive, manage metadata, and much more. This improves the functionality of the web client, especially when collaborating with other users through shared libraries in Teams or SharePoint.
Another enhancement making its way to the cloud storage service relates to the Known Folder Move (KFM) feature. Admins can now prevent certain types of files, such as app shortcuts and the like, from being synced to OneDrive or SharePoint. The excluded files contain a separate icon displayed on them in the File Explorer which the firm calls a “do not enter” status. A message in the sync center will also notify users about the status of such files when the feature is enabled. You can head to the support article here for more information.
In addition to these features already being made available, the Redmond firm is also expected to begin rolling out a dark mode for the web client this month.
