Feeling quite P'd off at the moment as I am a very big Spotify fan.
My account payment bounced so I was reduced from premium to regular/unpaid for a day. Fixed up the bank issue and restored Premium access within 24 hours.
My WIndows 7 Spotify player started giving me hell- when I start it, it just says initialising for a second then does nothing.
I click on it again and it says Spotify is already running please close it.
Have to manually end the process through task manager (have read other discussions re this issue) but Spotify still won't launch.
Only fix: redownload and reinstall Spotify and it will load again.
Problem: I have 3.5 GB of downloaded Premium offline playlists that I do NOT feel like having to redownload...
I backed up my original Spotify folder with the cache (3.5GB).
Is there a way for me to restore the offline cache files now? When I copy the old spotify folder in over the new one the issue with the starting and initialising but seeming to crash starts again.
Am fairly P'd off at the moment re the downloaded offline music- the reason I pay for Premium is so that I can access my playlists offline without using quota.
There needs to be a better way of securing/backing up/keeping the offline files so that there is no data loss if the player starts having issues.
Otherwise, love spotify, love the concept, love the product.
