Microsoft to Release Windows’ OneDrive 64-bit Version

Finally, Microsoft is releasing OneDrive 64-bit Version for Windows. Transferring bigger files is now a breeze.

This new version will make enable users to transfer larger or several files simultaneously. It's because the 64-bit systems can acquire more resources compared to their 32-bit counterparts. 

Most users possibly don't know what OneDrive version they are using. However, they can check this out by clicking the "Help & Settings" icon in the OneDrive app and next to the "About" section. Beneath "About Microsoft OneDrive," it will notify if the version being used is either 64-bit or the 32-bit version.

According to Microsoft, "We know this has been a long-awaited and highly requested feature, and we're thrilled to make it available for early access. You can now download the 64-bit version for use with OneDrive work, school, and home accounts." 

Users must take note that the preview is presently only accessible on x64 installs of Windows. If the computer being used, for example, is the Surface Pro X with Windows 10 on ARM installed, the best thing to do is wait. Microsoft advises continuing the use of the 32-bit version as of the moment. 

Additionally, Microsoft suggests that ARM64 devices must continue with OneDrive's 32-bit version. The OneDrive 64-bit version, on the other hand, is only compatible with AMD64 devices.

Computers that operate 64-bit versions of Windows typically have more resources, including memory and processing power. It can access more memory up to 18.4 million Petabytes. A petabyte is the expanse of memory or data storage capacity that's equal to 2 to the 50th power of bytes.

Up to this time, OneDrive's 32-bit version has been pre-equipped with Windows 10 devices. Contrarily, the OneDrive for Apple's macOS laptops is only accessible as a 64-bit app. Apple began its 64-bit transformation on macOS three years ago with High Sierra 10.13.4.
