Hi all: before I start, there's an older, very similar topic on the same issue, but the website suggested I start a new topic. Link: https://community.spotify.com/t5/Desktop-Windows/High-CPU-Usage-amp-Memory-Leak/m-p/4441639
After a little while of Spotify being open, it starts to eat memory and use up to 50% of my CPU. This is clearly a problem of corrupted cache - resetting the app makes it work again for a little while before the problem recurs. This happened with both the traditional and UWP apps.
I've tried reinstalling Spotify several times, moving it to my hard drive (I have windows installed on an SSD), enabling/disabling hardware acceleration, yet nothing works. Maybe it's one of my playlists, I don't know, but something seems to be repeatedly corrupting the app's cache.
Lastly, here are my system specs:
RAM: 32GB DDR4
Storage: 500GB NVMe SSD, 2TB HDD
GPU: GTX 770
Here is a screenshot. There is clearly a really bad memory leak, seemingly because the Spotify app seems to have reserved 92% of my 32 gigs of RAM.
