Not all local files are showing up

Not all local files are showing up


In the past few days, I have been experiencing an issue regarding the local files feature of desktop spotify.

While some of the .mp3 files are showing up, a lot of them aren't. Even when I change the folders, the same files show up on spotify, but others don't.



I have the files 1, 2 and 3 on one folder. Only 2 and 3 are showing up on spotify

I delete that folder, create a new one, and change my settings to allow for it. Still 1 doesn't show up, but 2 and 3 do.


It's extremely specific. I tried many of the solutions found on the help forums, but they didn't help me. Does anyone have any idea of what's causing it? I use spotify premium.


Thanks for the attention.

Hey there @,


Thank you for your post here in the Community. We're happy to help you further.


Can you make sure that the file isn't DRM (Digital Rights Management) protected? If you have iTunes, you can check for DRM protected tracks by following these steps.


Keep us posted. We're always one reply away 🙂
