How to manage my Local Files


How to manage my Local Files

Casual Listener


I don´t like that Spotify has automatically copied all my local files to the Spotify / my library !! 

( I didn’t use Spotify for quite a while and with opening it started to copy everything)

I found out now that I can enable this by changing the switch, but everything that is already in my library doesn´t go away. I tried it by deleting Spotify from my computer but  with re-installing and logging in, it was all still there..

So I want to know how I can delete this all, since it should be my choice what is in my library !!

Thank you !

Hey @evirock7,


Can you just double check for me that you've disabled adding for all your local file locations that you may have added in settings?

If that doesn't work, would you mind doing a full clean reinstall for me? This article will show you how.


Let me know if you find anything 🙂
