OneDrive Unlimited Storage is, in fact, Limited

Microsoft made headlines recently by lifting it’s 1 TB free space limit and offering customer “unlimited” storage.  As recently reported by Tech Republic, however, the “unlimited” does not really mean “without limits” when coming from Microsoft.

Specifically, Microsoft limits OneDrive accounts to 20,000 files — a fact confirmed by Microsoft in the article.

A typical MS Office user may have an average MS Office file size of about 30 KB.  With a 20,000 file limit in OneDrive, most users will use less than 600 GB of space.  Increasing the free storage limit from 1 TB to unlimited is meaningless.  

The changes makes for good marketing but offers customers nothing.
