OneDrive for Business quota increaseLukas Beran
Users with Office 365 Enterprise E3, E4 and E5, or with equivalent Government and Education plans or with just SharePoint Online Plan 2 or OneDrive for Business Plan 2 and at least 5 licensed users are eligible for free OneDrive for Business quota increase from 1TB to 5 TB. Upgrade should be released automatically, but if you don’t want to wait, you can increase the quota manually using SharePoint Online management shell.
First you need SharePoint Online management shell installed on your computer. And for this you need PowerShell 3.0, which is a part of Windows 10 and for Windows 7 or older Windows Servers you can download it from Windows Management Framework 3.0.
After PowerShell 3.0 installation you can install SharePoint Online management shell.
Now we can connect to our SharePoint Online in Office 365
Connect-SPOService -Url https://contoso-admin.sharepoint.com -credential email@example.com
where replace contoso by a name of your tenant and add admin credentials.
Now we are connected to SharePoint Online.
Using Get-SPOTenant | Select OneDriveStorageQuota we can check current quota (in megabytes)
Now we set new default quota to 5 TB which is applied automatically to all new users
Set-SPOTenant -OneDriveStorageQuota 5242880
If we now again check the setting PS C:\windows\System32> Get-SPOTenant | Select OneDriveStorageQuota, we should see 5TB quota
Now all new users will have 5TB quota, but current users are not affected by this change. Now we set the quota to current users
Set-SPOSite -Identity [siteId] -StorageQuota 5242880
where -Identity is an address of OneDrive for Business, so in my example https://lukasberan-my.sharepoint.com/personal/lukasberan_lukasberan_cz .
If we now check the setting Get-SPOSite -Identity https://lukasberan-my.sharepoint.com/personal/lukasberan_lukasberan_cz, we should see new 5TB quota

This new quota now should be visible also from a web interface of OneDrive for Business.
