Answer:


You can move the folders wherever you want, you just need to create symlink to \AppData\Local and \AppData\Roaming.

 

All the files are going to be stored in New:\Spotify\Roaming\Location and New:\Spotify\Local\Location. The hard link is going to be created in \AppData\Local and \AppData\Roaming.

 

mklink /j "C:\Users\YourUSER\AppData\Roaming\Spotify" New:\Spotify\Roaming\Location
mklink /j "C:\Users\YourUSER\AppData\Local\Spotify" New:\Spotify\Local\Location

Make sure to adjust YourUSER, accordingly. Also, you will need to delete 

 

C:\Users\YourUSER\AppData\Roaming\Spotify

 

and 

 

C:\Users\YourUSER\AppData\Local\Spotify

 

and then execute the symlink procedure.
