Microsoft released the first 64-bit version of Windows early on. In 2007, it came out with OneDrive. Despite this history, the Windows version of the file sync app is only upgraded to 64-bit, with Microsoft announcing a new client preview. In one ad spotted by the Windows guru Paul thurrott, the company claims that the new version of OneDrive will help those who need to transfer large files or many files at the same time, as 64-bit systems can access more resources than their 32-bit counterparts.
“We know this has been a much anticipated and much requested feature, and we’re excited to make it available for early access, ”the company said. You can now download the 64-bit version for use with work, school, and personal OneDrive accounts. One thing to note is the preview is currently only available on x64 installations of Windows. If you have a computer such as Surface Pro X – and therefore have Windows 10 on ARM installed on your system – you will have to wait. Microsoft recommends that you continue to use the 32-bit version for now.
