SharePoint Online improves limits and makes it easier to restore documents

Office 365 is growing rapidly and companies are moving more of their social and collaboration needs to the cloud. Users are uploading more documents to SkyDrive Pro, teams are building numerous team sites to work with internal teams as well as with external customers and partners, and companies are establishing their corporate intranet sites.

Based on feedback and reports on how customers use the service, we’ve made the following improvements to SharePoint Online:

  • Improved file upload experience: increased file upload limit from 250MB to 2 GB 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 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.

These updates will be rolling out live worldwide over the coming weeks without interruption. Let’s dive into the details.
