My Question or Issue
I selected a folder to add to my local files on spotify, but for some reason it's missing a lot of the songs in the folder (about 2000 of them), and i can't tell why at all. I have tried deselecting and reselecting, restarting spotify, even deleting the local-files.bnk folder and restarting spotify, but nothing is working.
Here is my local files configuration:
Here is an example song in my Serato DJ music library folder:
Here is my local files search returning absolutely 0 results for the song
I immediately can tell something is off because local files is scanning and saying I have 3237 songs while my 'Serato DJ Music Library' folder clearly has 5000+ items
Once I go in and add the specific folder that that file is in (/2020DLS/jan/more REMINDER), local files recognizes it. Is this an issue of local files not being able to go deep enough into nested folders? It would be extremely tedious to add every little subfolder to my local files... It even seems to be missing everything in the entire subfolder (/2020DLS/jan) ...

Hey there @sqr_08,
Thank you for your post and for providing the screenshots here in the Community. We're happy to help.
Can you try to add each folder as a source rather than a main folder?
If that doesn't do the trick, can you let us know which version of the app you have?
Also - is it always the same songs that are missing or is it random?
We'll keep an eye out for your reply.
