Microsoft Office365 A1 / A1P / E3 MSDN / E3 global administrators modify their own and user OneDrive storage size method

The following is the key point, now Microsoft Office365 A1 / A1P / E3 MSDN / E3 defaults to 1T storage space per user, including the global administrator. Although we can directly set the storage to 5T or other sizes on the panel, because existing users, including global administrators, cannot directly modify the existing capacity, so this modification will only take effect for new users. Especially for the global administrator itself, if it will not be modified, it will always be 1T. Here is the method for the global administrator to modify itself and the existing user OneDrive storage size.

Method one

Note: This method is simple, but it will only work for accounts that have not opened OneDrive (no activation)


Log in to the global administrator account at the access address: https://admin.onedrive.com/#v=StorageSettings , set the capacity to 5120 G, and then click Save.

Lift Up The Space of One Drive Via Web Setting

If the saving does not take effect or the number has not changed, please try again at another time.
The new users will default to 5T, and the old users must delete the account and rebuild to have 5T.

The global administrator itself cannot delete itself, so we need to re-invent a new global administrator and log in. Then delete the old global administrator user, so that the global administrator is 5T storage space.

Method two (recommended)

Note: This method requires more complicated command operations, but it is effective for any user in the organization.
This method can be changed to 5TB Onedrive without deleting, or you can directly modify the capacity of existing users.


1. We first install the latest SharePoint Online Management Shell,
download address:


2. Click the start button in the lower-left corner of the computer, search SharePoint Online Management Shell, and then click SharePoint Online Management Shell, a command box will pop up.

1. In the shell window, enter the following code

Connect-SPOService -Url https://orgname-admin.sharepoint.com

(1) orgname is the name of the organization where you registered

Example https://officeenwtf-my.sharepoint.com/

My complete code is as follows

Connect-SPOService -Url https://officeenwtf-my.sharepoint.com/

2. Press Enter after completing the input. At this time, a window will pop up to enter the email address and password of the administrator.

3. Change the storage space of OneDrive 5 TB for a specific user and
continue to enter the following code:
Set-SPOSite -Identity https://officeenwtf-my.sharepoint.com/personal/admin_office_en_wtf -StorageQuota 5242880

For example,

if you want to change the OneDrive capacity of the user [email protected], then it is

if you want to change the OneDrive capacity of the user email name [email protected] the URL address is


After the input is complete, if there is no red error prompt, then it is completed, the Onedrive capacity has become 5T.
