Change the storage space for a specific user's OneDrive

  1. Download the latest SharePoint Online Management Shell.

    Note

    If you installed a previous version of the SharePoint Online Management Shell, go to Add or remove programs and uninstall “SharePoint Online Management Shell.”
    On the Download Center page, select your language and then click the Download button. You’ll be asked to choose between downloading a x64 and x86 .msi file. Download the x64 file if you’re running the 64-bit version of Windows or the x86 file if you’re running the 32-bit version. If you don’t know, see https://support.microsoft.com/help/13443/windows-which-operating-system. After the file downloads, run it and follow the steps in the Setup Wizard.

  2. Connect to SharePoint Online as a global admin or SharePoint admin in Office 365. To learn how, see Getting started with SharePoint Online Management Shell.

  3. Run the following command:

    Set-SPOSite -Identity <user's OneDrive URL> -StorageQuota <quota>
    

    (Where <user's OneDrive URL> is the URL of the user's OneDrive and <quota> is the value in megabytes for the storage space.

    A user’s OneDrive URL is based on their username. For example,
    https://microsoft-my.sharepoint.com/personal/user1_contoso_com. You can find their username on the Active users (or Deleted users) page in the Microsoft 365 admin center.

    For storage space, you would enter 1048576 for 1 TB or 5242880 for 5 TB. 1024 MB (1 GB) is the minimum. If you enter a lower value, it will be rounded up. If you specify a value greater than that allowed by a user's license, the value will be rounded down to the maximum value allowed by their license.

    Note

    If you want to change the storage space for multiple users, you can use PowerShell to Display a list of OneDrive accounts by using PowerShell. To disable OneDrive creation for specific users, see Manage user profiles in the SharePoint admin center.
