Microsoft has now increased the SharePoint per file upload size limit to 10 GB. Here’s a full list of SharePoint Online limitations. Now, this has thrown up a number of new challenges for this upload to be carried out through code.
- Cannot keep such a large file in a single .NET object.
- It’s very difficult to upload a file of this magnitude in a single HTTP request. If ever, the connection fails, the entire upload would have to be restarted! For a large file, this could easily turn into a nightmare for us.
