My Question or Issue

I have been trying to figure out how how to delete the local files on my macbook but still keep the songs in my library (so that i can still stream music) just cause i want to free up space in my mac. Is there any way about this?

Hey @johu,


Hope you are doing great!

Yes, you can remove them from Spotify. Just go to it's Settings. Then just look for Local Files section, should be right below Social settings. Turn the switches off for Local Files and you should be good to go.


Have a nice day 🙂
