OneDrive is a cloud storage service that allows users to store and access their files from any device. OneDrive users have a default storage quota of 1 TB, but sometimes they may need more space for their work or personal files. We will explain how a global administrator in Azure can increase a user’s OneDrive size up to 5 TB.
To increase a user’s OneDrive size, the global administrator needs to follow these steps:
- Sign in to the Microsoft 365 admin center with a global administrator account.
- In the left navigation pane, select Users > Active users.
- In the list of users, find the user whose OneDrive size you want to increase, and click on their name.
- In the user details pane, under OneDrive, click on Manage storage.
- In the OneDrive storage page, under Storage limit, click on Edit.
- In the Edit storage limit dialog box, enter the new storage limit in GB (up to 5120 GB), and click on Save.
The new storage limit will take effect immediately, and the user will be able to see it in their OneDrive settings.
Note: Increasing a user’s OneDrive size does not affect their Microsoft 365 subscription or license.
We have shown how a global administrator in Azure can increase a user’s OneDrive size up to 5 TB. This can be useful for users who need more space for their files in the cloud. However, the global administrator should also monitor the usage and performance of OneDrive, and ensure that the users follow the best practices for managing their files and folders.
