Recently all my downloaded files were deleted, so to redownload my music again I used the solution to go to Song in my library and press Download.
Now whenever I save a new album, the songs are automatically downloaded. This is not something I want, since it will result in too many downloads and then the whole problem of all downloads being deleted is back again.
So my question is, how do I stop spotify from automatically downloading all albums that I save?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Enabling download from the songs view in your library means that every time a song is added to your library, it will be automatically downloaded. Saving an album, adds all the songs in the album to your library and they will be downloaded automatically.
To stop this happening, you need to go to "songs" and turn off the download switch. Note that this will "undownload" all your songs and you will need to go to the albums and playlists you want to have available offline and turn on the "download" switch for each one.
Hopefully, as all the songs have already been downloaded, it will only take a moment.
