The upgrade will also be added to upgrade roadmap for OneDrive For Business, and will roll out to First Release customers next year.

It comes on top of an upgrade OneDrive for Business, Office 365 ProPlus accounts in April that saw storage limits increase from 25 gigabytes to 1 terabyte of storage per user.

This was followed in June by the basic storage limit for OneDrive being boosted to 15 gigabytes, up from 7 gigabytes previously, while Office 365 Home, Personal and University accounts were boosted to one terabyte of storage per person.
