After I restarted my phone, my Spotify app switches to internal storage instead of SD-card, downloading all of my 3000+ songs again. This was only an annoyance before, since it fills up my internal storage to the max. But today it also cost me money, because it happened at work where I am not connected to WiFi.
I have my app set to download using cellular because I occasionally download a song when I'm in the train or something. Now my bundle is done. Thank you very much Spotify. I am not happy.
Not only that, but this issue has already been addressed in freakin' 2016 , which topic is closed WITHOUT REPLY.
PLEASE. FIX. THIS.
Or give a workaround.

256 GB SD card

Hey there @iGrasmat,
Thanks for posting and welcome to the Community.
Our tech folks are aware and currently looking into this issue.
We'd recommend heading over to this thread and adding your +VOTE to stay updated with any news we have to pass on. It'd be also helpful leaving a comment there with the required info.
Hope this helps clarify things!
My issue happens when I use another App (like my PC) beside my mobile.
Thanks for searching for the answer you need here! We're happy to help.
Just to make sure that we're on the same page - do you mean that the storage location on your phone switches from SD card to internal, when you use the app on you desktop? There shouldn't be a way for the app on one device to influence the storage setting of an other. Could you post the make and model of your devices, their OS versions and the versions of the Spotify app? A recording of the issue would also help us a lot in identifying the root cause of the problem. You can use the Attach Video option in the post editor, just make sure to hide any private/sensitive information.
We'll be keeping an eye out for your reply! Keep us posted, if you have any questions.
We are on the same page. I will try to attach the evidence but here are the steps in order to reproduce the issue:
The behavior expected would be: In the mobile app settings, the storage settings will be "both" checked, and the library will be downloading again all the songs.
My mobile device is a Moto G7 Plus with Android 10. My PC is a Macbook Pro with a 10.15.6 SO version installed.
This issue will not happen if in the PC you are using the web version of the Spotify.
Thanks for the info and latest follow-up!
Jumping in with @Mihail to get a second look into this. Speaking of the expected behavior of your G7 and the fact that the storage settings should be both checked, do you maybe have a chance to test what happens if you try to install Spotify from scratch on another similar device?
Asking this since it's not unlikely that the app's storage setting switches to Internal by default upon the app being freshly installed and it'd be helpful to see what happens in more than one case when trying.
We'll keep an eye on your reply and do our best to help.
Thanks for keeping us in the loop.
If the storage setting get reverted upon a restart of the phone it's more likely that you're experiencing a case of this Ongoing Issue, rather that the root cause of the problem lying with your desktop.
To test this further, could you let us know if this happens if you set the storage on your phone to the SD card and restart the device, while the app is uninstalled from your PC?
Keep us posted. We're always one reply away 🙂
Thanks for testing it out and getting back to us with the result.
