Data on "C" drive still grows even when I select offline storage to be on a completely separate drive.
I thought that I could keep my "C" Drive clean and slim by selecting an alternate offline storage location and have all the listening related data going to that location instead of my "C" drive.
Previous desktop versions worked in this fashion and I am hoping that you have a solution to address this for me.
the default "c" drive data folder = 6.18GB
and the "offline storage" folder = 4.82mb
(Y:\Spotify offline storage) I created on my "y" drive (a separate internal SSD data only drive).
As you can see, my data is still going to and being stored in the default "C" drive installation location. I have not yet selected any music to be downloaded for offline listening and that is why the "y" drive location is so small.
Thanks in advance for your attention and help.

Solved! Go to Solution.
The location on your C Drive you are referring to is only cache. You can't change the cache location within the App, only the Offline storage as you already did.
Offline storage is used for downloaded songs.
You can make a symlink to another location.
Delete the folder you want to be stored at a different location, open elevated CMD and use mklink.
mklink -d "old directory path" "new directory path" mklink -d "C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Packages\SpotifyAB.SpotifyMusic_zpdnekdrzrea0\LocalCache\Spotify\Data" "Y:\Spotify local cache"
