OneDrive is deleting files from the Music folder

There are so many variables here, I have no idea what topic to post this under.

I am running Windows 10 on my PC with my local music folder synced to the OneDrive music folder, to allow streaming of all my music to my Lumia 920 running Windows 10 for phones TP (Build 10512).

I have noticed that, by the hundreds, files are being deleted from the Music folder and moved to the Recycle Bin. Since the folder is synced to my PC, the local copies of the files are also deleted.

This then becomes a drain on bandwidth and resources because I can either restore the files from the OneDrive recycle bin (which causes the files to be downloaded to the local folder), or restore from my local recycle bin (which causes the files to be uploaded to OneDrive).

I'm completely at a loss as to why OneDrive is automatically deleting files. Any theories? Thanks in advance.
