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.
- If you are moving lots of data, you can only upload 10 files at a time
- The files have to contain content…no empty text documents, for example (although not sure why you’d need these anyway.)
- 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
- The maximum file size is 15GB. More information about the storage limits can be found in Microsoft documentation.
- Since these files are just housed in SharePoint Online on the backend, the normal SPO limits apply.

So You Wanna Copy or Move Files to Microsoft Teams?
While consolidating random pieces of documentation into a new Team recently, I noticed that simply copying or moving existing files and folder structures didn’t happen as I expected. As a best practice, I don’t recommend doing wholesale file moves into Teams. Instead, you should consider if the files are even needed (because we all know that person who refuses to get rid of the file with the lunchroom menu from 1992 because “you never know”).
If you have a folder and file structure that is ready to be migrated into your Team, though, there is a solution.
