Improvement on download logic to prevent loss of data.
Anyone who has a SD card suffers tremendously when booting devices. I am aware that this behavior occurs on SD storage.
I believe that if a unique user key was created in the moment of login, it would work as any "home" directory. This is a major problem of Spotify , and it has to be addressed.
I interact with thousands of files that must be downloaded every time I boot..
Before starting the download after a reboot, the app must try to find any other downloaded music for that user key (in any mounted storage). Another possibility is to OFFER the option of a new download, OR browsing the destination of already downloaded content.
In terms of illustration, if user A has downloaded content and user B logs in, the user key would be different, so any downloads for user A wouldn't work. Then , if user A logs in on the same device, the content would be available.
