Certain local files not showing

Certain local files not showing

Yesterday I was having some trouble with local files, so I fiddled with the local files settings in the Preferences menu a bit. I reset the options a second later, and all my local files came back, but the only ones that weren't showing were the ones I have added to my playlists. These files are located in my Music directory, which Spotify is very clearly searching for as shown in my Preferences, so why is it not finding these particular files?


Let me remind you that all local files are showing, except the songs I've added to personal playlists. I can see them in my playlists, but they are grayed out and when I attempt to play them, I get a small notification at the top of my screen that reads: "This song is not available. If you have the file on your computer you can import it." As I mentioned earlier, I do have the files on my computer, in the Music directory, which Spotify is searching for, and now I'm nothing but confused.


This is incredibly obnoxious and I've spent at least an hour going through the forums trying to find a solution, but nothing seemed to work. Thanks in advance, I'd really appreciate any help I can get.

Nevermind, it fixed itself for some reason.
