spotify keeps downloading songs!!?

mindphaser
Ok, so none of my playlists are set to online/download. I keep deleting the cache, reinstalling, etc but the files keep reappearing in my SD card and I have no way of finding out where Spotify is downloading the songs from!! Its annoying and taking up lots of space!maybe there is a random once off playlist that is set to download but how in the world should I know which one it is? All the ones I'm following and the ones I've recently played are not set to download. What to do?

Hi,

Spotify will store some files on your SD card as it caches while streaming. The space taken shouldn't be too noticeable though.

How much space is it taking from your SD card? Could you give a screenshot of the App Data?

well the files reappear in the cache folder immediately after ive deleted it. so its obviously not streaming stuff. it's about 100 mb, and the exact amount changes every time...

That'll be application cache... settings, playlist information, app images and general aplication cache. It is not downloaded songs but instead part of the core application and is needed for the app to run.

why does every cleaner app calls it "downloaded songs" from spotify?

Daniel
You'd have to ask the developer of the cleaner app.
