  • Have you even searched Google before asking? – Danny '365CSI' Engelman Feb 22 '16 at 10:31
  • Yo Danny..I did google it before posting here... All it returned was the max size of file which can be uploaded and that is the common answer I am getting here as well. I m interested in knowing if there is any limit to Document library size. Will be grateful if you can pass the url from google. – Ankit Kumar Feb 22 '16 at 10:39
  • 2 answers below get you links to information on the web. Why did you not find those? I typed this header text of your question in Google and got at least 5 pointers on the first Google page. – Danny '365CSI' Engelman Feb 22 '16 at 10:51
  • Ok.. I also went through the articles but skipped after reading the article ...my bad I should have gone through the full article....but on positive side this link is appearing in top five links now...life becomes easy when it is stack exchange :) – Ankit Kumar Feb 22 '16 at 10:57

According to this article, 1 TB is the maximum storage size of a site collection in SharePoint Online. So, accordingly you won't be able to upload 1 TB of data in one document library.

IMHO, uploading that much data into single library will also be a design issue depending upon your use-case.

The default maximum file size is 250 MB. This is a configurable limit that can be increased up to 2 GB (2,047 MB). However, a large volume of very large files can affect farm performance.
