Like many, I'm having issues with my local files in Spotify on my Windows laptop. I have over 30,000 local files that I would like to be able to listen to along with music I stream on Spotify. I understand that this is a fairly large number of songs, but I have never had such issues with any other music player. I continue to deal with buggy, glitchy, freezing behavior from Spotify, and while that is all annoying, my big gripe right now is that not all of my local files are appearing in the playlist.
I keep my playlist sorted by artist name and it cuts off in the middle of artists starting with the letter "P." In fact, it looks like the playlist stopped loading at exactly 20,000 songs, even though at the top it says that I have 31,xxx songs. There are no blank slots below the last song, like some people have experienced; it just stops. All songs are mp3 files. I've tried a clean reinstall and updating the folder location for local files in "Preferences" to no avail. Is there a new limit to local files that I'm unaware of? If not, what can I do to resolve this?

I was able to solve this problem like this:
All of my files are now there!
