Microsoft has now officially announced it has increased the file size limit on its OneDrive cloud storage service from 2 GB to 10 GB.

Microsoft said, “In internal tests, this parallel syncing netted an approximately threefold increase in sync speed.” The Windows 7 and 8 owners will also see another new feature in the upcoming few weeks which will allow them to share files without having to go to the site.

This feature will apparently be added for Windows 8.1 and Mac users at some point in the future.
