Office 365 Update: Expanding file management in modern SharePoint Libraries

We previously rolled out the modern Copy/Move command bar button for OneDrive for Business. We’re now enhancing that capability to First Release tenants for SharePoint Online libraries, allowing you to copy files of larger sizes, up to 500MB from SharePoint team sites to other SharePoint team sites, or back to a personal OneDrive for Business, removing our initial limit of 50MB. The Copy/Move dialog uses Microsoft Graph to surface a list of most recently used team sites, as well as support for browsing to a target destination, rather than manually entering URL targets. Copy To will also allow the user to generate a duplicate copy if the file is copied to the same target library and folder. Finally, modern file management now supports downloading multiple SharePoint files to a single ZIP file.
