Background: I have a duel boot (linux and windows) laptop computer and an external harddrive. When at home, I plug into the harddrive to access my music collection. When I am away, I depend on internet streaming.
I am unable to stream those tracks which spotify has established as being on the harddrive. I can click on the track, but it will not play. There's no error message. Ideally I should be able to stream the tracks if they're not available.
This problem follows me over to my linux Spotify program, so I'm certain the profile created on what tracks I own is on the server rather than my machine.
Ah, I found the solution. Click on the 'Local Files' tab, right-click on the file and 'unlink'. I'd like to make the suggestion that there be some sort of error message dialog that would clarify what's going on, though.
