I changed my "Offline Songs Storage" in my settings and restarted, I then downloaded a few songs and didn't expect my Appdata/Local/Spotify/Data to be filled with 700mo ?
My OS drive is installed on a SSD and I don't want to use it for nothing, especially if I'm downloading lots of music. This is why I've changed the path of the Offline Songs Storage, thinking I wouldn't use much the SSD, and still, he uses my OS drive instead my hard drive (even if he downloads the music) ...
Little explanation or help over here, what's in this data file, can it be moved ?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Didn't think of it but I created a mklink
Basically it will make Spotify think the "Data" folder is there, but in reality it is stored elsewhere.
First move your folder Data from your AppData where you want it stored (with the data usage).
Then open the CMD with WINDOWS + R, then type CMD then press ENTER.
Then type :
mklink /J "C:\Users\yourUserName\AppData\Local\Spotify\Data" "D:\Spotify\Storage\Data"
yourUserName : explicit;
D is my storage drive, change it as you like in the folders you'd like with "\" signs.
You don't need a "Data" folder inside your AppData spotify folder, because this command will create a "Link" with the look of a folder.
If you enter this created file, you'll see and think is it that the Data is still saved on the C drive, but it is the point, make the program think that.
In fact the data is really stored in your storage Driver.
If you have a "permission denied" message, right click the CMD icon in your tray, another time on the "Command prompt" then run in admin.
