Grant Access to a User's OneDrive using PowerShell


This PowerShell script is used to grant admin permissions to a user's OneDrive account, even if the user has been deleted from Active Directory.

First, you need to change the variables in the script below to the values that you need

Second, you need to sign into the SPO Service as a global administrator (or at least a SharePoint Administrator)

Import-Module -Name Microsoft.Online.SharePoint.PowerShell

# --- Change these variables ---
$SPAdminURL = "https://contoso-admin.sharepoint.com"
$OneDriveURL = "https://contoso-my.sharepoint.com/personal/user_contoso_com"
$AcctName = "grantAccessUser@contoso.com"

Connect-SPOService -Url $SPAdminURL 
Set-SPOUser -Site $OneDriveURL -IsSiteCollectionAdmin $true -LoginName $AcctName
