Restrictions and limitations in OneDrive Web Download


We had a problem downloading folders using Onedrive web. Under some conditions the download of a folder stops or the result does not contain all the files of the source folder.
When we contacted Microsoft, we learned that there is a limit on downloading folders using Onedrive web:

  • The folder cannot contain more than 50,000 files
  • The single file cannot exceed 15GB in size.

Microsoft recommends using Onedrive client.
