[ SOLVED ] Delete local files from Spotify? [Windows 10 Desktop]

[ UPDATE ]
Managed to delete the local files by opening "local-files.bnk" in Notepad, delete everything in the file and overwrite the empty local-files.bnk! Location: (C:\Users\*Windows Username*\AppData\Roaming\Spotify\Users\*Spotify Username* 

I'll let this here for people with the same problem.

[ ORIGINAL POST ]

For some reason Spotify keeps adding my Music collection in Local files, it makes the program use ridiculous amounts of Processor and Ram usage. 

With music collection i mean loading 27.000+ mp3 files totaling on around 300GB everytime i start Spotify.

How can i keep Spotify from loading my music files and delete all current songs from the list? Because this is becoming very frustrating.  

Tried the following solutions:
- Turn Off all "Local Files" settings in settings menu
- Delete Library references in Windows itself
- Delete "local-files.bnk" in AppData map
- Reinstalled Spotify multiple times (Including CCleaner whipe, deleting all Cache and profile files)
- Renaming and relocating Music folder

Thanks in advance!
