Cache location changing and local files begin removed every couple days

Cache location changing and local files begin removed every couple days

As the title says for the past few weeks (maybe longer) every couple days Spotify informs me that my local access for my computer has been withdrawn. Then I look in my settings and I notice my cache folder location has returned to default. Once I change it back I can start redownloading my songs to local, although they always get stuck at some point (with a few hundred left to download). I only use Spotify on my own computer and a tablet (occasionally I use the web player elsewhere).


I have Spotify premium and use Windows 8. 


I've cancelled my premium subscribtion for now, I'll restart it if this problem is ever fixed.

Hey! Welcome to the community 🙂 


This was a known bug in v0.9.0.128 and before, but has now been fixed. 

If you are still using v0.9.0.128 and have not yet been pushed to .129 then just download the Spotify installer again from here and install.
