    WMP Library and OneDive dilemma

    Hello all,

    I use WMP and I would like to put all of my music files on OneDrive and let WMP view the Music library from OneDrive. But when making my music files on OneDrive online only to save space, all of the tags (album, artist, genre, etc.) disappears and WMP would view these music files' tags as "Unknown" in its library (except for the song title) making the library not organized in albums, artists, genre, etc.

    I can add these tags manually in the WMP library again for each music file and WMP would save these tags, even if the music files are online only on OneDrive. But suppose I'd like to clean install Windows. This would mean I'd have to add all these tags manually each time after a format. I would therefore need some backup copy of the library information.

    I tried backing up the WMP library files (CurrentDatabase_400.wmdb and wmpfolders.wmdb) but when putting these back in the original Appdata directory, WMP still doesn't show the tags of the online-only music files on OneDrive.

    Is there any effective way to back up the WMP library which I can put back after a clean install to show the music files organized with all their tags?
