Microsoft recently started rolling out the 64-bit version of OneDrive to Windows 10 PCs. The new version of the cloud syncing app should handle large files better than the 32-bit version available previously. Jason Moore, head of product for OneDrive and Microsoft Lists, shared news of the rollout on Twitter.
Microsoft explains the benefits of the 64-bit version of OneDrive in a Tech Community post from when it first rolled out to Insiders:
The 64-bit version is the right choice if you plan to use large files, if you have a lot of files, and if you have a computer that’s running a 64-bit version of Windows. Computers running 64-bit versions of Windows generally have more resources—such as processing power and memory—than their 32-bit predecessors. Also, 64-bit applications can access more memory than 32-bit applications (up to 18.4 million Petabytes).
At this time, there isn’t an ARM64 version of the 64-bit version of OneDrive.
