Files are still there in the folder, and they read in the section local files but they dissappear in playlists, and they show as not complete dowloded playlists, as for what i was doing i was just prowsing the web, it ussualy happens when i add new mp3 to the folder or close and reopen the app
I'm trying to figure what's up, but right now all I've found is a bug from early 2015 that sometimes stopped local files from syncing. Your issue is your PC as well right, not just your phone?
I did find a thread that appeared to be the same issue from January 2016, but there was no solution posted. Really annoying.
So now I am trying to replicate the issue. It seems like Spotify sort of 'forgets' how to handle you local files whenever you add a new one. Since I found that thread from January it might be a bug, but I'll ask around. Hang on!
seems like it fixed the issue but im not 100 percent shure, because it happens randomly after changes in the folder, also it didn't detected all the files for the first time i added the folder i had to switch the follder on and off a couple times
I've been having the same issue, only on my computer though. I've tried to identify patterns as to what songs disappear but even within one album from a CD some songs stop working while others are fine.
For me the songs still show in both Local Files and the Playlists they were added to but they are greyed out and cannot be played. I'll try moving the folder to desktop as suggested and let you know if that works.
Ok I tried a few things and I think I finnally know what's causing the songs to disappear and it's not spotify causing the issue so far as I can tell. It seems windows media player automatically detects songs and makes changes to the details and I think it's causing spotify not to recognise the same file. I have completely disabled this feature in WMP and then removed all the deets it added, I'll play around with it and post tomorrow if this has solved the issue.
