Combine OneDrive Storage
Allow paid OneDrive users to combine their storage usage. For example, I am a paying Office 365 subscriber that needs more than 1TB of storage that is allotted to my OneDrive account.
The Office365 plan offers 5 individual accounts, each with 1TB of OneDrive storage. I am only using 2 of the 5 accounts. Why can't I combine 1TB (or more) of storage from one of the other 3 accounts I'm not using with the one that I am using, giving me 2TB of storage space? Or create the OneDrive Storage as a standalone feature that can be added to a single account. So a paid user could technically add up to 5TB of storage space under 1 account.
NEED THIS FEATURE PLEASE!
If, upon paying for office 365, one has up to 6 tb of dedicated storage space, it seems only reasonable to allow the end user to determine if it is best utilized by giving 6 people 1tb each or having a shared space where all 6 users can share the 6tb space
I don't necessarily expect this, but I sure wish you would provide it. In reality, in a family, a lot of data is "owned jointly". In my case, we have a large family video and picture collection that my wife and my two daughters and I all want to share. We can partition the videos and pictures arbitrarily to span the spaces but it would be easier if we could share a pool. We'd all have and want personal space as well. We can manage, at least for now, with the 6TB limit. Please consider this, thanks!
I want to have the 6tb to use how I see fit. If I want one user to have 3 and another to have 1 I should be able to set it that way. We should be able to customize our accounts to whatever we need. After all we are the ones paying for it. As long as we do not go over the amount we are paying for I do not see what the problem is.

I also would like the full 5 TB of storage to share with family or use it all my self on 5 different computers that I would like to combine in one account to access from different computers.

Please active this facility ASAP.
I am the only family member who needs the OneDrive Storage space.
My 1TB usage is running out.
I need to access the remaining storage space on the other family accounts.
I have been asking this same question for months now and just get the run around. Finally I was sent here to see there are others with this same request. What do we do now?
I couldn't agree more!!!
AGREE! I am looking at options other than onedrive now. Ridiculous that i am willing to pay for it and cant have it, and iut should just already be an option period. Please fix quick before i migrate everything elsewhere...

High time that Microsoft quickly responds to that, since it has already been more than two years since the idea was first mooted. Do they need signed petitions???

this is a very important feature
I'm looking for cloud storage and was on the verge of being OneDrive with Office365 but the 1tb limitation for each user is way too restrictive. I thought this was the perfect solution as a review I read indicated it was 5TB of storage and could be shared as one size. But, it's not. Rendering OneDrive useless for me. So, this is my vote for the ability to combine the multiple 1tb users into one shared space.
I'd BUY and keep my subscription of the Office Home 365 if merged OneDrive storage (without the sharing folder trick of multiple users) would be possible finally.
recently, the Office 365 plan offers 6 individuals (increased from 5 individuals), is new feature does not help people when it comes to cloud storage, I would love it if I can combine the extra storage with my existing account, instead of creating a new one and then use the extra cloud storage
Microsoft please make it happen!!! REALLY NEED MORE STORAGE

I want to move all my storage into OneDrive now online only files are available on Mac however I need about 1.2TB for my files including photos.
Please allow me to use the storage I am paying for or even allow me to purchase more storage for 1 account.
I understand the business chase and that 1TB is given out but next expected to be used by all members of the family. With that in mind I am willing to pay extra for the space.

I strongly believe paid users should have the ability to allocate storage spaces for each account to maximise this stroage plan.

Crickets from MS because they don's care as they already have the market share. Cannot wait until this backfires on them!
