By default, your Microsoft Developer E5 will only give you 5TB for your OneDrive accounts. Actually, Microsoft has provide a easy way to upgrade your storage limit to 25TB. It is just hided from normal setting page.
In this post, I am going to show you a free and easy way to upgrade your OneDrive from 5T to 25T, without making any manual request to Microsoft or writing some PowerShell script.
Check Your Current OneDrive / Share Point Configuration
Log in Microsoft 365 admin center (https://admin.microsoft.com/) using a global admin account
Click All admin centers from left panel
Click SharePoint to go to SharePoint admin center
Click settings from left panel of SharePoint admin center
Check SharePoint Site Storage Limits and OneDrive StorageLimit
For SharePoint, we can set specific limits for each site manually.
For OneDrive, maximum default storage limit you can set is only 5120GB (5T).
Pre-requirement to Upgrade OneDrive to 25T
Process to Upgrade OneDrive from 5T to 25T
Enter “Increate OneDrive Storage”, wait Run diagnostics section shows up
Enter the user or email you would like to upgrade to 25T, then click Run Tests button
If your user’s OneDrive is not used over 90% of the current 5TB limit, you will not be able to upgrade to 25TB
Copy your OneDrive files to different folder to make it use more than 90% of 5TB storage.
Check OneDrive’s Storage metrics to verify your site usage
If you already used up 5T, you might have an optional button to request more quota for your account as show from following screenshot
If the tests detect that the user’s OneDrive site can be upgraded to exceed the 5 TB quota, select Update Settings for the diagnostic to process the increase.
Sometimes, the Upgrade Settings button will not show up. You might need to open a service request to request upgrade.
Did you know a portion of the saved support cost from these diagnostic runs are donated to global non-profits? See Diagnostics for Social Good.
Here is a ticket I opened to request increasing quota for my OneDrive account:
