My Question or Issue
Every now and then I notice my harddrive clogging up with cache data from several apps and I start cleaning it out.
At first I suspected it to be cached data so I could listen to the songs without internet connection.. but its not. the app simply wont play the songs.
there are over 2500 files in the %appdata%/local/spotify/data directory, most of those are in 2character labeled directories. On average I think I remove ~10-15GB of music data from the %appdata% directory.
I expected there to be some data but not a huge amount more than the music I listen to.
On my phone I have the playlist set to download, it has about 5GB stored. This indicates the playlist must be about that size.
is there a way to prevent the desktop app from clogging up my harddrive?
