Five File Related Gotchas in Microsoft Teams

When uploading files into Microsoft Teams, there are a few gotchas that I wasn’t aware of until I recently tried moving some data into a new Team.  I thought sharing these may be of use to others as well.

  1. If you are moving lots of data, you can only upload 10 files at a time
  2. The files have to contain content…no empty text documents, for example (although not sure why you’d need these anyway.)
  3. By default in the Teams client, you will lose any folder structure if doing a wholesale move of files.  You can manually create the folder before copying files or use a workaround
  4. The maximum file size is 15GB.  More information about the storage limits can be found in Microsoft documentation.
  5. Since these files are just housed in SharePoint Online on the backend, the normal SPO limits apply.
