Hi, is this true for Office 365 Small Business.
max 5000 files in sharepoint.
max 250MB filesize

How could this be used in a company? 5000 files isnt much.

Is the 5000 files limit in all Office 365 plans??

When we called MS they say that the solutions is to buy a small server, a 2012 essentials server to store files on, but why should we then have Office 365 Small Business ???? What is going on??

yes that is true ..

Please refer below link which has given all limitation :


The 5,000 item list threshold relates to the way that SQL Server handles tables.  If the table has over 5,000 items the table is locked automatically.


so solution is have your own server or go for bigger plan which suits for your requirement
