    I was recently setting up OneDrive / Groove music I could access mylibrary in the cloud. My understanding was that Groove allowed 50,000 songs to be uploaded free of charge to the OneDrive music folder and whatever space that took up it wouldn't come out of the OneDrive allowance? However OneDrive won't sync music past 5GB? Has something changed?

    according to this article, you still have 50000 limit. Perhaps check where you're storing the songs and in what formats

    Thanks for replying, I have read that article and can confirm that A.) The songs are in the OneDrive\Music folder and B.) They are all in a supported format. I raised a case with MS and they have not fully understood the issue and simply said if your OneDrive is 5GB then you can only sync 5GB of data - which of course is a massive contradiction to what the article states. Google music still allow you to upload up to 50,000...

    the article say that you can upload upto 50000 songs. What it doesn't say is whether your storage gets used up or not.

    I talked with MS chat support a few minutes ago on this and the confirmed that the 50000 song limit applies only if you have enough storage. So if you had 100GB free, you could upload a lot more songs and if you had office 365, then you can actually upload 50000 songs.

    But with ordinary 5GB storage, it can't be done. You could only upload the maximum that the storage allows which is something like a 1000
