Hi Team,

From this article, here is storage limit about Teams,

https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/limits-specifications-teams#storage

However, I don't understand this very clearly.

What does "1 TB per organization plus 10 GB per license purchased" mean for Teams?

If I create a team, does it have the 25T storage by default?

If I create multiple teams, will they share the storage quota?

    @Panda666 ,

    I will answer your questions one by one as below:

    Question 1. What does "1 TB per organization plus 10 GB per license purchased" mean for Teams?

    It means each tenant has 1TB storage for files. And when you buy a subscription, it will contain a number of purchased licenses( assume as X). So, the storage of your tenant will be (10GB*X + 1TB).

    Question 2. If I create a team, does it have the 25T storage by default?

    This number is limited by the whole storage of you tenant. If your tenant’s storage is less than 25 TB, The storage for Teams files will also less than 25TB.

    Question 3. If I create multiple teams, will they share the storage quota?

    Yes.

    Hi, could you help me to understand this with an example?

    If I have a tenant and 10 users, then the tennat has 1tera plus 10Gb x10 users.

    If I create a team to colaborate between 5 users, and the users share 100 gb in the team created, where do you substract those 100 gb? Do you substract them from the 1 tera assigned to the company tenant?

    Does it means, that my tenant will have now 900 gb?

    Do the users spend some of their storage when they put files at the teams space?

    Thanks for the clarifications
