My Question or Issue

 Hi there,

 

I'm trying to add a local folder of music to my laptop's spotify install. The folder is:

/dev/nvme0n1p7 on /insecure type fuseblk (ro,relatime,user_id=0,group_id=0,default_permissions,allow_other,blksize=4096)

which is an unencrypted NTFS partition shared with the other operating systems on this machine.

 

When I try to browse to it in the Spotify settings it simply isn't visible (see attached), nor are the other mountpoints at the root of the filesystem.

 

If I manually run zenity --file-selection --directory I do see it. I also cannot follow symlinks to get into this filesystem.

 

How can I get around this?

I can't help but I'm getting something similar, here's hoping it's related.

 

Mountpoints are visible for me and I can select one but when I actually start downloading to use offline, my mounted drive volume doesn't change at all.

 

Weirdly enough, spotify seems to create the folder structure on the mounted drive - it just doesn't put anything in it. If I set the "save to" folder to be the internal default, I get files. If I then change that setting to the mounted drive, the next time I open Spotify, the files appear very briefly and are quickly wiped away.
