Has there been a change in Sharepoint allocation?

Copper Contributor

Is anyone aware of a change in how Microsoft allocates Sharepoint storage? Our storage allocation was recently reduced 1TB between November 2023 and today. I've opened a ticket with MS but they cannot tell me whether or not allocation has changed since November. The number of E3 licenses has been relatively static.

The same thing has just happened to us and I'm scrambling to find out what has happened as we are "over capacity" by at least 1TB.
Hi everyone !

Well, I think I'm having something similar today.

My SharePoint storage policy has always been setup on "Automatic" and when I create a SharePoint site (behind a Teams, MS 365 groups, or even standalone)... I've got 25 Tb allocated storage automatically.

Well it was true until few days, where I discover that when I create a site, I now have 1 Tb allocated storage by default, that's quite a change !

Does anyone know what it means ? Is the storage moving automatically from 1 Tb to 2 Tb... 5 Tb and so on when the site is becoming full ?

I don't see any communication from Microsoft on this... I think that's something that definitely needs to be documented somewhere !

Thanks for your help !
