Hello! I just installed Spotify for the first time. One of the reasons I'm interested in it is the support for Local Files. But I tried to add a large number of .mp3 (23K) and within after a few minutes it had eaten all available memory and the app was no longer responsive. It ramped from 8GB and everything else on the machine was idle. The drop at the end of this graph is after I killed the Spotify process.
I tried this with both the Win32 intaller and the Windows Store app, both had the same result.
I've seen others comment on this issue on this forum, going back years. It is trivial for me to repro and my hardware is run-of-the-mill, in fact 16GB is probably above the average. Why has this not been addressed yet? Should I just assume Spotify can't now and won't anytime soon scale to this level?
