Ok, here's my scenario. My wife is a Spotify user with her own PC/Android devices. She also uses my machine on occasion (maybe once or twice a month) and has installed Spotify on my machine with my blessing.
Unfortunately, I discovered that it's downloading gigabytes of un-needed, unwanted and frankly unacceptable data. There doesn't appear to be any preference options to remove this local garbage and prevent further downloads.
I don't need the data. I don't want the data. And I particularly don't want my SSD life shortened. Good grief, Spotify is supposed to be a STREAMING service.
Is there any way to disable this parasitic use of hard drive space for music I will never listen to?
Any help would be appreciated.
Also, if anyone has any insight as to why Spotify hides its install under AppData I'd love to know what the deal is there.
