Google Drive now lets you send 10GB Files

By Mahesh Chand News | Windows 8 Dec 02, 2012
Gmail and Google Drive has increased the file size limit, up to 10GB.
blog announcement by Gmail and Drive product manager Phil Sharp mentioned that now you can send files up to 10GB in size.

In his blog, he wrote:

“Have you ever tried to attach a file to an email only to find out it's too large to send? Now with Drive, you can insert files up to 10GB -- 400 times larger than what you can send as a traditional attachment. Also, because you’re sending a file stored in the cloud, all your recipients will have access to the same, most-up-to-date version.

It will be interesting to see what Microsoft does after this.

I believe, Microsoft SkyDrive allows up to 2GB free storage. Now after this announcement, I am sure Microsoft will step up its storage size.

This will definitely impact DropBox.

With the launch of Windows 8, SkyDrive is becoming quite popular. Windows 8 automatically connects, stores and syncs your files to SkyDrive. I’ve been using Windows 8, Office 2013, and other new cool tools including SkyDrive. It makes my life easier. Now I don’t need to login to Gmail or download and use DropBox. I simply right-click on the Explorer and sync or auto sync my files. Microsoft recently added the selective sync feature to SkyDrive, which I found very useful.
