[Desktop] Local Files appearing in Liked Songs

For some reason, a few of my local files have popped up in my liked songs and I can't get rid of them.

I ran into this problem in the past and what I did was search for the same song in the mobile app (in this case iOS) and remove it from my liked songs there and then it disappears from the desktop app too.

@renzhubin Thanks for the tip, will attempt to do it for the next couple of days. Hope it works for me too.

@MattSuda Tried to do that too. Unfortunately, when I tried to remove the song from my Liked Songs on my phone, it seemed to work for a moment, but then it just reappeared right away and nothing changed.

I may have found a solution. I tried unliking the songs while in offline mode (internet turned off) and this worked on both my phone and my laptop. Hope the songs won't come up again, that would be a bummer

OK so the issue has been fixed on Android, I was able to delete all my local files from Liked Songs but today I opened the desktop app and the songs were still showing up there, even though on Android they appeared as Deleted/Not Liked

I just tried this again today when I found some old local files in my liked songs list and it worked. When I deleted (unliked) them from liked songs list in the mobile app I had the desktop app open at the same time. Once I unliked the song from iPhone it disappeared from the desktop app too. Try doing it with both the mobile app and desktop app open at the same time.

Posted this on Thursday.

Songs reappeared today! 😞

I have tried all the above suggestions but none have worked. When I unlike the song (either by selecting it and hitting Delete on Windows, or clicking the heart/sliding left on iOS) it immediately comes back. On iOS it shows the loading icon (3 dots in centre of screen) then comes back.
