Local Files Lost After Re-install

I'm a premium member and was having issues with some songs from albums not playing while others were playing just fine, so I uninstalled/re-installed the app on windows 10.  It solved the issues of the songs playing but now 30,000+ local files are no longer in the library.  Is there a system file somewhere that keeps all of the links to local files somewhere like iTunes does or do I have to re-link all of the folders each time a reinstall is needed?  Can't just select one folder and have it link all of the sub-folders, Spotify can't handle the volume and crashes each and every time I try.

Hey @Asim0725, welcome to the Community.

 

Hope you are having a great day!

 

Unfortunately there is no way to return them the way you had organized those songs.

Becase when you deleted Spotify, everything you had done locally is erased and you have to re-enable Local Files in Settings so they will reappaer again but you will have to reorganize them again.

 

Hope I was able to help :)
