How to limit com.spotify.client folder size?

How to limit com.spotify.client folder size?




Macbook Pro

Operating System

macOS Catalina


My Question or Issue

A while ago, I found that the com.spotify.client folder (specifically the "Data" subfolder) had bloated over less than two months (since I got my current machine) to over 11 GB. I've moved it into trash, but is there a way I can limit the size of that folder ahead of time so I don't have to manually delete it every 1-2 months?


And for the record, I know someone answered this question already, but I'm not sure if trust myself to not wuss out (that is, decide I want the old settings back), or screw something up with code that I can't revert. So is there an alternative to either manual deletion or this code change? If not, would there be a way to change the settings back to normal if I wussed out?

Hey @user-removed, 


Welcome to the Community! Thanks for reaching out about this.


At the moment, it's not possible to limit this folder's size. However, we'd recommend following the steps in the link you sent as they've been helpful for other users.


In case you'd like to revert any change, you can always perform a clean reinstall of the app. You can also delete the newly added text line.
