[Desktop] Version 0.9.0 resets the cache location to default

Status: Fixed

Thread: 364532

Status: Resolved


Since update 0.9.0 the cache location resets every time you exit the app.
This has two side effects:
Any content you had downloaded before 0.9.0 is gone
Any users with a small primary hard disk are unable to download tracks

Additional information:



You can now download the latest version from spotify.com; this will resolve this bug.



We have started rolling out version to users and can confirm this bug is resolved.

If you don't have this latest version yet, do not worry. It will reach everyone soon.


Pro tip: log out and in of the Spotify app around the time of a new release; sometimes this triggers an update.

Getting the same issue here.

This bug can be reproduced by simply quitting Spotify and starting it again.


Hope this get sorted out soon. My primary drive has very little space 😞


Thank you 😄 !


I have the same problem, on two different computers. Both Windows 7.

My android phone also got updated, and offline playlists are now gone... version


Same here on WIndows 8 64Bit. Spotify Version


Same Problem here,


Windows 7 64bit




I have also the same issue...

Will it be a solution for this or will the cache location always be resets to default?




Same here, but also with the message "offline access for this computer/device has been withdrawn"


I also have this problem. The path is correct in my preferences but Spotify does not care and use default cache path.


And now the same problem with my iphone application... All my offline playlist went away, I have to synchronized them again... Wonderful...


I have the same issue too. Spotify version 0.9.0

Two windows 8 computers 64bit.

It happened once with my phone, but I guess it doesn't happen anymore since I don't exit the app on my phone. ( Android )


Same problem here with my win 7 desktop version 0.9.0

please fix this fast!!!!
