    The instructions are clear and easy to understand, even someone as absentminded than me, a non-native English speaker can get it by reading the instructions once. The only fault I found is that whoever has written that document has not used a line break before the screenshots thus making the document visually quite messy.
    The opening paragraph is not clear. I found it tedious, and not to the point -- Rambling. Then it jumps into a graphic presentation, which you admit, is flawed. I guess you love it like a parent loves their 4th grader playing clarinet.

    I never read where he thought he had 120 GB

    OD1 has 20GB files, OD2 15GB, so now OD1 can see and use its own 20GB and the 15GB of shared files from OD2, a total of 35GB. OD2 can see the same 35GB, its own 15GB and 20GB from OD1. You can now add 10GB content to OD1 until it is full (30GB), and you can add 15GB content to OD2 until it, too is full (30GB).

    If you, using OD1, add content to the folder OD2 has shared, it will decrease the OD2's remaining quota. However you think of it, whatever you do, you still have only 60GB (2*30GB) OneDrive storage, not 120GB.

    That was exactly my point, perhaps I wasn't clear. Before I could only sync 30GB using the OneDrive app as you could only use one account (I had to use the web interface for the second). Now I can sync the full 60GB (total) with 2 accounts and, presumably, 90GB (total) with 3 and so on.

    I (because I have 2 MS accounts) now have 60GB (total) not 30GB that can be synched through the app. I never said anything about 120GB - I know the amount of free space I have is the same (2 accounts x 30GB) but now I can sync it all through the app whereas before I couldn't.

    It is an excellent improvement (if you don't have Office 365 of course) as using the web interface is a chore.

    My apologies, I misread this: "I have 2 MS accounts with 30GB free on each so now I can now sync 60GB through OneDrive just by sharing folders in one account with the other.". I assumed you mean that somehow your storage quota could be doubled with sharing the folders.

    My bad, my mistake.
