[Desktop] Non-existent local files in library

Status: Closed

I recently went through all the local files I had on my computer and removed them all from Spotify.  Weirdly, after doing so, about half of the songs still show up in the "Local Files" playlist, and they don't appear greyed out either.  This is really annoying, as when I try to add the songs back to the playlist, duplicate entries of the songs appear, and I can't play either of them.

Hey @drousso!

 

Thanks for reaching out to us.

 

Let's try removing the folder the songs were added from on the Spotify app. Just head to the Spotify Settings > Local Files, and flip the green button next to the folder.

 

We also suggest restarting Spotify before heading back to the Settings and turning on the folders with your local files again.

 

Let us know if that does the trick.
