No freed space when I unsubscribed to playlist

Hi,

 

I have some playlists that I made available offline, I need to free disk space, I don't know how to delete the musics that I've made available offlien so what I did is I unsubscribed to that playlist thinking that it will recover some free space but there's no change at my disk space at all.

 

I also turned off the option 'Available Offline' but it did not recover some free space as well.

 

Thanks,

Welch

You will find that marking a playlist as no longer downloaded won't remove the files immediately, Spotify hangs onto them for a while just incase you marked the playlist by accident and want to download it again. Given a little time it should free up some space. You can also decrease the maximum cache size in the Preferences menu. 

 

If not, a clean re-installation of the client will clean it all out for you (although you will need to resync everything).
