Microsoft is removing the 2GB file sync ban on its OneDrive cloud storage service

While this may qualify as a pleasant surprise, Omar Shahine, Microsoft’s Group Program Manager for OneDrive, recently said that Redmond was working to remove the 2GB restriction in an official forum thread for the cloud storage service.

“It’s simply an old limit that we’ve been working on removing for far too long now,” Shahine said on August 21. “The good news is that we are actively working on this.”
