Well, this is great news! Sorry my original post was written in frustration and very pleased Spotify took it seriously and came up with the remedy. Thanks to the team

I just installed the app and started behaving the described way. However, going into settings shows the "Play local files" option was disabled. The workaround was enabling it, disabling each folder individually, then disabling the feature completely. The app should ask the user if they want to use local files on first run and, if for whatever reason you still want to index local files for some hidden reason, please be considerate and try to detect if the file/folder is marked as online only. Here's how to do it:

If "Show local files" is deactivated Spotify has no business scanning anything on my drive. This shouldn't be an issue to start with, nevermind one I need to resort to Google to find a fix for.
