I spent some time this evening researching file size limitations for Google Docs. Here is what I found:
One thing I did not know was that files you upload, but do not convert to Google Doc format can be up to 1GB in size.I have been concerned with using Google Docs as primary cloud storage because I always seem to be getting yelled at for file size too large on upload. However I'm always converting file at upload.1GB is plenty big for any file I will be storing in the clouds. If I need bigger I can use Amazon S3.
- Documents - 512,000 characters, regardless of the number of pages or font size. Uploaded document files that are converted to Google documents format can't be larger than 1MB.
- Spreadsheets - Uploaded spreadsheet files that are converted to Google spreadsheets format can't be larger than 20MB, and need to be under 400,000 cells and 256 columns per sheet.
- Presentations: - Presentations created in Google Docs can be up to 10MB -- which is about 200 slides.
- Drawings - There is no document size limitation posted.
