Clearing storage space when you delete a song?

I have a premium account and when I'm deleting an offline song in my playlist the songs cache doesn't get deleted. Why is it so? It takes up unnecessary storage space. So to clear up some space you have to delete the WHOLE spotify cache (because it's impossible to find a specific songs cache) and then re-sync everything again... Please, does anybody have a solution for this?

I hunk Spotify tries to manage the storage intelligently - if you remove a song from an offline playlist it wont be delete from the cache straight away just in case it is needed again. It will be removed, and the space reclaimed, after a few days Ira's soon as Spotify needs more space itself.

That doesn't help you if you need that space for other apps though.
