Updated to Android 8.0.0 . All offline songs stopped working.

I updated to Android 8.0.0 and all was fine, my offline music was all still showing as downloaded, and had the green arrow next to it, but when I selected one to play it would play only nothing. The song then greyed out on the list of songs.

 

I have reinstalled several times, cleared all cache from the device, rebooted several times, cleared all my offline devices on the website (still trying to figure out how to make PC work offline again) and NOW... When I log in and try to make a playlist offline, even my total offline playlists that are on the SD card, it says "DOWNLOAD ERROR Downloading has stopped because there's no space left on the device." And then the Downloading says "waiting to download..." and doesn't do anything.

I have just unencrpyted my SD card and spotify popped up and said something about reaching the maximum of offline devices and all songs were cleared (but I only have 2).

 

Songs are now redownloading on the unencrypted SD card. Seems the android update is not working properly with Spotify and the encryption of the SD card.

 

An awful lot of pain to go through becuase of this. Thousands of offline and online songs.
