📁 How to securely share and send large files via OneDrive for Business?
Here's how to safely send large files up to 250 GigaByte (GB)
Securely sending large files can be a tricky task, especially when these files reach the size of 250 GB or more. Of course, there are several platforms available that make it easy to share large files, such as WeTransfer, Dropbox and Google Drive. While these services are user-friendly, they do not let you maintain complete control over your files.

OneDrive lets you securely share and manage large files so you can always access your crucial documents. If you don't already have a OneDrive account, simply create a free account through this blog.
