My Question or Issue

I am trying to delete the local files on my Spotify, I have tried everything. Ive tried going to "%appdata%\Spotify\Users\" and deleting "local-files.bnk". I have tried moving the folder where the local files are saved to a new location, tried changing the name of the folder, I have uninstalled Spotify, I have restarted my computer. I have done all this multiple times. Those files are STILL there. 
Does any one know how I can remove them?

Hey @AlliraB 


If I understood correctly, you're trying to stop Spotify from showing your local files?

You should be able to hide that section by going to Preferences (menu dots - Edit), scrolling down to Local Files and turn off (turn gray) the slider for "Show Local Files".


If it's not working, try clean reinstall - see this article on how to do that!

Let me know how it goes! 🙂
