Change in Cache Location without effect

Hi All,

 

I tried moving the cache from my ssd to my hdd but the change has no effect. Spotify creates a folder on my hdd but does not use this folder (the size stays at a few Kbytes). The cache on my ssd keeps growing...

 

Any ideas?

Hi,

I also had this issue. I solved it on the Arch linux by using symbolic links provided by OS.

Lets say you want to move cache location from ~/.cache/spotify/ to /mnt/hdd/.cache/spotify.

1) Close spotify

2) Move all data from ~/.cache/spotify/ to /mnt/hdd/.cache/spotify

3) delete ~/.cache/spotify

4) Issue following command in terminal:
ln -s /mnt/hdd/.cache/spotify ~/.cache/spotify

5) Test it by running Spotify
