Microsoft delivered the initial 64-bit version of Windows back in the early aughts. In 2007, it came out with OneDrive. Despite of that that history, the Windows release of the file-syncing app is only now making the jump to 64-bit, with Microsoft announcing a new client preview.
In an announcement spotted by Windows guru Paul Thurrott, the company says the new version of OneDrive will help those who need to transfer large files or many files at the same time since 64-bit systems can access more resources than their 32-bit counterparts.
“We know this has been a long-awaited and highly requested feature, and we’re thrilled to make it available for early access,” the company said. “You can now download the 64-bit version for use with OneDrive work, school, and home accounts.”One thing to note is the see is at present just accessible on x64 installs of Windows. If you own a PC like the Surface Pro X — and therefore have Windows 10 on ARM introduced on your framework — you’ll have to wait. Microsoft recommends you continue using 32-bit version for the present.
