    OneDrive help please


    Hi.

    I recently purchased a OneDrive subscription and am having a problem with it not fully syncing my music folder.

    Locally my music is saved in the Music folder->Artist->Album->Tracks. OneDrive is only syncing the Artist and Album titles but no tracks. All my photos and documents are fine.

    Has anyone experienced this before?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    All those albums and tracks must of course be stored in C:\Users\Your_Username\OneDrive\Music folder to be synced to OneDrive, not in C:\Users\Your_Username\Music folder.

    You're welcome.

    I'm a single user using one account. I just dump mine in the global OneDrive folder at the top of the hierarchy, which populates my account, but You'd be better listening to Kari above. He's a master at computing. I would think dropping it in the global folder would populate all user accounts? Not sure.

    What do you mean with "global" folder?

    I'm sure my terminology is incorrect. Not familiar with multiple accounts. I'm in my 8.1, but 10 is basically the same on my laptop. I'm referring to placing files in the OneDrive folder at the top of WE hierarchy list. It will then populate into my personal OneDrive folder that's circled.

    Like I said, this is in 8.1 below.

    OK.. I think I'm an idiot..

    I thought that the 'OneDrive' folders appearing in Explorer were actually virtual folders showing was was synced from C:\Users\Your_Username\Music folder.. I didn't realize that the OneDrive folders were actually stored locally which I confirmed by disconnecting from the internet and opened the OneDrive folder and saw all my files..

    So now I'm going to move the files from C:\Users\Your_Username\Music folder to C:\Users\Your_Username\OneDrive\Music


    ​Thanks everyone...

    You're welcome. Please don't be hard on yourself. You're not an idiot if you're trying to learn. Perhaps a little ignorant to it. Tech is a little difficult to keep up with so far as changes with the new. OneDrive takes a little to get used to.

    Glad you got it sorted out.

    @HippsieGypsie I have to agree. OneDrive can be a real pain in the backside, especially when uploading a file on one device and trying to view/access it on another.
    P.s. If you need any help with computers, just message me on here and I'll do my best to help; I'm pretty smart when it comes to computers
    You can also email me, just ask for my email address and I'll message you.
