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!
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. Learn more about the offerings here: https://onedrive.live.com/about/additional-storage/
Additionally, we do not have plans to enable combining OneDrive storage across separate accounts.

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!

We need more votes! Please share this topic on forums, etc.
Microsoft, this is a NO BRAINER! In fact, it is also a no-brainer to allow a single user plan to get up to 10TB, in 1TB increments. We want to pay you even! As soon as a competitor opens up these options, along with a single file to be at least 30GB (ie. a 2 hour 8mm video tape), you will lose. FIX THIS ALREADY!
Yes, please lets do this. The master account holder should be able to allocate space per account and consolidate as need be. This should be a no-brainer!!!
Require this at all costs. 1tb is not enough. We need different plans like 2,4,5tb individual plans , before moving on to business plans on a user level basis.
Currently 1tb is definitely not enough... At least for me

Agree, instead of 1TB storage each, it would be better to pool all the storage as one lot. Each person can still store their files individually in their own folder structure etc as it is now, but they are using an X amount of the full combined storage. This makes much more sense than having to have 1TB each. Especially if you don;t use all five accounts.
Hey Microsoft, when will you provide this, give us some feedback about the idea.

another idea could be to tune the onedrive storage for each account from 0 to 5Tb max concurrently
absolutely agreed on this. I don't want to have to have five email addresses to utilize the storage.
Almost 1 year, and no response from Microsoft!!!! shocking service.
The technology exists and should be easy to configure. It's call drive quotas, you let the main account determine how much each family member can use or in the case where family is less than 5 members take the remainder and add to the main account storage. Seems pretty simple to me.
Any respond to this?
