SharePoint Storage Limit – How to Manage

In this SharePoint tutorial, I will explain the SharePoint default storage size and how to manage storage limits on the SharePoint site.

I will also show you how to set the existing SharePoint site storage limit from the SharePoint Admin Center.

Manage SharePoint Storage Limits

When you create a SharePoint site from the admin center, by default, the storage limit will appear as 25600 GB.

However, the SharePoint site owner or Global administrator can change or set the storage limits on the SharePoint Online site from the SharePoint Admin center.

To work around this, follow the below-mentioned steps. Such as:

1. Open the SharePoint Admin center [https://<Tenant>-admin.sharepoint.com], expand the Sites dropdown, and click on the Active sites to get the total or available storage of your subscription, as shown below.

  • Automatic = Let sites use as much of your organization’s storage as they need
  • Manual = Set specific limits for each site

4. Now, select any one of these options and click on the Save button.
