Provide more than 1TB storage...PLEASE!
1TB is not what it was. 4k videos and SLR photos will fill that up surprisingly quickly.
I'd like to increase my OneDrive storage by more than 1TB (e.g., 2TB). But, you don't offer paid service for more than 1.05TB?! And the Azure path is too difficult. This is forcing me to look at other non-Microsoft solutions like Odrive. Why would you push me in that direction when I'd rather stay?
The option to get more than 1TB of OneDrive storage with an O365 subscription is now broadly available! You can upgrade your plan in 200GB increments, up to a total of 2TB.

Microsoft, how can you claim this is done? Do you really understand the customer request. Forcing us to yet again pay for another subscription when all we want is storage doesn’t seem like an appropriate answer. It’s great that O365 has the option but as a retiree, I simply won’t use O365 where it justifies the monthly cost especially when all I really want are OneDrive Storage options. Does this make sense and do you read requests that are flagged as done?
See attached apple iCloud options. They are usually the most expensive but now they are considerably less expensive. If you don’t want to be in the Storage game, just admit it and we can all move on but as you know, many have been mostly happy with MS and would prefer to stay and minimize the number of partners.
Amazon Drive offers 100gb for $19.99/year, that’s $1.66/mth. I would settle on OneDrive for all my cloud storage if you could even come close to Amazon or Apple’s storage pricing. We know the Consumer isn’t your focus, and maybe that should be our takeaway but am hoping you surprise all of us.
Update: attachment failed to upload. iCloud has an option of $2.99/mth for 200TB and $9.99/mth for 2TB.
These plan upgrades seem to be only available to the primaire account holder. Secundary O365 account holders can't upgrade. When will those accounts be able to upgrade their storage plan?
Has anyone gotten this to work? I have been getting an unhelpful error message each time I try to check out. I've tried on multiple browsers, machines, from different IP addresses, everything I can think of. Same "try later" failure. Help! (Also the chat help is not one bit helpful.)
I saw this pop up as an option yesterday (9/18/19) but I couldn't complete my purchase. Maybe we need a formal announcement.

You say "working on it" and the blog post has continued to say "in the coming months" for months. When is this rolling out? What's so hard about taking my money? If it's rolling out in certain areas first....I'm in North Seattle, 10 miles from Redmond HQ. Why not here?
I agree with what others here have reported...
similar to Sharepoint sites where you can reallocate storage, why is there not an option to reallocate OneDrive storage from users on the tenant.
1 user is given 500gb and the rest is held back in available bank to distribute when needed.
Use Amazon Photos. If you are a prime member, you get unlimited storage for full resolution photos. Video eats up space as do documents (PDFs, etc). I was surprised to find that my zip and rar files of jpgs do not eat up space. So I no longer sync my comics with OneDrive.
The deal is not good. My contract expires in a few days and I am not renewing it.
For the price most of us are paying, they could include at least 5TB, then charge more if you need it, this 1TB and now only an option let us buy up to 1 more is ridiculous.
Too little, too late, too expensive! I just cancelled the auto renewal of my plan and I will stop using the paid version of OneDrive before the end of this month. 😟
Thanks Ryan for the update. Really looking forward to this feature. May I ask why is there a cap at +1TB?
It is for sure not technical limit because OneDrive for Business can go to 5TB, 25TB or even further.
Paid for amazon 2tb 1yr subscription today.

Please convert 1 TB to 2 TB

Will move to a different service that can provide more space. 1 TB is not enough if you do photo/video work.
I am likely not renewing my subscription either, I just had to erase 300 GB worth of videos from the cloud and keep them somewhere else, the entire point of OneDrive was having real time backup of the most important files everywhere. They should have grown our space considerably (1 TB/year sounds quite reasonable for nowadays) with each renovation as an incentive to keep our accounts. They can always kick out people who misuse the system in any form.

While you "think about it", I decided to cancel my 5 years old subscription. I simply cannot wait for you to decide on the matter. I have deleted too many files.

The storage space is the one and only reason why I'm using Google DIsk for the time beeing. And since I'm already on that service, I also use their "office" solution, even though I like MS Office alot more by far.
1TB is not enough to hold Professional Designs and Photos, I like to have these files in one place, not split about the internet into 1TB Cloud Partitions! I need a minimum of 2TB. My current 2TB hard drive is running out of space and would like it backed up to the cloud - in one place with room to grow maybe 3TBs or more. Please give your paying customers options other than being stuck to 1TB. — On a side note I am raising a Family and that plan does work for me, it just needs more space.
Yea I'm moving to another provider. This is an age old issue

Google Drive, Dropbox & iCloud have all upgraded their regular 1TB accounts to 2TB at no additional charge to their customers. OneDrive is seriously lagging behind the trend here.
Let's not forget that a while back Microsoft announced unlimited storage for Office 365 users. I can understand wanting to restrict the obscene data hogs, but 1TB is just not good enough in 2019 with 4K video content being so prevalent.
If Microsoft wants to be a trendsetter and not just lag behind the cloud storage competition by a year or more, the 1TB allowance should change to 5TB in my opinion. Time is marching on and file sizes are only going to increase as cameras and cellphones capture higher fidelity content. So why go with 2TB when 5TB looks so much better against the competition and postpones the next conversation about storage limits for a much longer period.
