Change a specific user's OneDrive storage space

As a global or SharePoint admin in Microsoft 365, you can set the OneDrive storage space for a specific user.

Note

For info about setting the default storage space, see Set the default storage space for OneDrive users. For info about the storage available for your Microsoft 365 subscription, see the OneDrive service description.

The ability to change an individual's storage from the user interface is still not available for Multi-Geo enabled tenants. Please continue to use the PowerShell method outlined below until this functionality becomes available.

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 and use Set-SPOSite to make the change. To disable OneDrive creation for specific users, see Manage user profiles in the SharePoint admin center.

When you need cloud storage for individual users beyond the initial 5 TB, additional cloud storage will be granted as follows:

When a user has filled their 5 TB of OneDrive storage to at least 90% capacity, Microsoft will increase your default storage space in OneDrive to up to 25 TB per user (admins may set a lower per-user limit if they want to).

For any user that reaches at least 90% capacity of their 25 TB of OneDrive storage, additional cloud storage will be provided as 25 TB SharePoint team sites to individual users. Contact Microsoft technical support for information and assistance.

Admins can open a case with Microsoft technical support to request storage beyond 5 TB.
