A tail wagging hello to you!

If you've deleted local files from your Mac but they still appear on Spotify, you may need to remove them from your Spotify library as well. Here are the steps to do so:

  1. Open Spotify on your computer and go to your Library.
  2. Click on the "Local Files" option on the left-hand side of the screen.
  3. Find the files you want to remove and click on them to select them.
  4. Press the "Delete" key on your keyboard or right-click and select "Remove from your Library."
  5. Spotify will ask you to confirm that you want to remove the selected files. Click "Yes" to confirm.

Once you've removed the local files from your Spotify library, they should no longer appear in your playlists or saved songs. Note that if the files were part of a playlist, you'll need to remove them from the playlist as well. Additionally, it may take a few moments for the changes to sync between your devices. If you're still seeing the files after following these steps, try logging out of Spotify and logging back in to refresh your library.

Don’t leave me howling at the wind, keep me posted on the situation!
