Onedrive question number 2

I use Onedrive as my personal store (since sky drive days and on my windows phone)
Is there anyway I can take advantage of taking advantage of the 1tb folder I can get with Office 365 linked to my current outlook/Onedrive user Id without having to juggle 2 accounts?

Er .


Please edit this to make sense as its giving me a headache.
I have a windows phone which can see my office 365 onedrive which was originally installed on a lynx 8 tablet and then on my home mini pc, its all locked into my microsoft account used to login to windows 8/10 .

Using the same microsoft account would have helped

Google suggests multiple accounts is something Microsoft has been 'working on' for years - and haven't got anywhere with.

I have a Onedrive account - had it for years with the 30gb (soon to be 15gb); I use the same account as it happens on my windows phone but that's by the by.

Office 365 provides you with 5 one drive accounts with 1tb capacity.
Basically rather than having to set up another outlook ID to take advantage of this 1tb account is there anyway I can use the same outlook account used on my phone and current 30gb account and use the 1tb office365 Onedrive account?

Hope that's clearer? (Sorry)

You used to be able to link 2 accounts to share files between them but they stopped allowing that.

Have you got Office 365 Home? You can just invite another user and they'll get the extra storage.
