SharePoint Online limits and storage increase roll out worldwide

As companies continue to move more of their needs to the cloud, it became clear that we needed some improvements and limit increases to account for this growth. We are happy to announce the following updates will be rolling out worldwide over the coming weeks:

  • Improved file upload experience. Increased file upload limit from 250MB to 2GB and expanded support for a broader range of file types.
  • Increased Site collection and list lookup limits. Increased site collection limit from 3,000 to 10,000 sites and list lookup threshold to 12 lookups.
  • Improved self-restoration. Increasing recycle bin retention duration and turning versioning on by default for new SkyDrive Pro libraries.
