  1. Accidental merge of OneDrive and Music folders


    I tried to move Windows Music folder into OneDrive (so that it will be backed up) and instead of choosing D:\onedrive\music I chose D:\onedrive so they somehow merged. Now the onedrive folder has a music (note) icon and contains what onedrive used to contain. How can I restore music folder ?

    :)

  2. Music Folder Behaving Badly in OneDrive

    Hi Robert,

    There is a possibility that the Music folder is synced to your OneDrive that is why any files deleted from either of the folders is synced to the other. For us to better assist you with the said folder, we'd like to ask for additional information:

    • Can you please provide a screenshot of the Music folder from the OneDrive folder and home folder?
    • What are the troubleshooting steps that you were advised to do?
    We will wait for your quick response.

  3. OneDrive music folder music not synced to Groove Music

    Hi Alan,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community.

    Sorry to know that you are unable to sync Onedrive music folder with Groove Music app and Groove Music Web Player. I will certainly help you.

    I recommend you to add the Onedrive music files to Music folder (Navigate to
    This PC
    > Music) on the PC and then launch the
    Groove Music Web Player, check if it lists the songs.

    If the issue persists, I suggest you to move the Folder from the location to the
    Default Library Music folder and check if the Groove app
    syncs them.

    Hope this helps. If the issue remains unresolved, please get back to us and we would be happy to help.

    Thank you.

    Accidental merge of OneDrive and Music folders

    Turned Hard Drive into Music folder

    • Create a folder on the D drive and name it 'Music'
    • Move all the files and folders that should be in the Music folder into this new folder
    • Then in Quick Access, right click the Windows Music Library, select Properties
    • Then on the location Tab, set its location to the new 'Music' folder
    • When asked if you want to merge contents - Select 'No'
    • Click 'Apply' and 'OK'

    If you want you can leave the music folder on the D Drive, or you can then click 'Restore Default' to move it back onto the C Drive

    If needs be for the Documents folder, you can perform the same operation by creating a new Documents folder on the D Drive

    NOTE: the important step is (5) do not merge the contents . . .
