As a government Office365 user, we keep our files on the government servers or OneDrive. My job is different in that I do graphics using Adobe products and do not use the Adobe cloud for files.
That being said, graphics files are typically large. Am I to zip the files before uploading them to OneDrive or to Teams/SharePoint? Some files, even when zipped, are larger than 15GB. How can I store them on OneDrive or SharePoint? What is the size limit of a file to store on OneDrive? Is it because the files are not MS files?
The upload speed to Teams are very slow for me. I never know upload progress...if the upload will be completed soon or not. Is there something I can do to see upload progress of my files? Same goes for when I move files from the server to OneDrive. Upload speeds are slow and I cannot judge when they will be completed. Is something going to be done to put an upload progress bar onscreen in OneDrive and in Teams?
Thanks in advance for your assistance on this.

I see that many plans give a user 1 TB for storage. I am prepared to zip my files--but not if I am using them frequently--to make most of my storage capacity.
I now have the OneDrive icon on my task bar to see upload progress--no one told me about this.
But I am also wondering about the Teams upload. There is no progress bar, just the spinning upload in progress message at the top toolbar. One never knows when it will end.
Just finding it difficult to do my work while the upload is going on.

I am a graphic designer and just wanted you to understand that the software I use, which is Adobe and Acrobat, do not automatically SAVE to MS OneDrive as would Office365 documents. I fully understand and do know how to upload Office files to MS OneDrive with autosave, but my bread and butter is with Adobe files.
This is what I store in OneDrive--Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, and Acrobat. These are not MS files! I am mixing software brands here. I believe you have misunderstood what I have asked.
MS OneDrive is what the government has provided me with for storage of my Adobe files and I use it. I have to manually save each time. There is no training on how to automatically save these files to OneDrive--or to Teams.

IT has setup OneDrive and Teams. We have received no training on how to use either and I have tried, over the years, to view YouTube videos for training. That could be why I have asked for advice from Microsoft Tech Community.
