Yes, true.

I forgot to say that the folder was on my external SD card, not the main card. Not so strange, as this was where I stored my offline music..

This is certainly a bug with potify and notyour ROM. It's happeneing on my NExus 7 as well as my SGS4, from what I can tell it seems to be part alzy programing in not clening up after itself and part a bug that is not getting picked up.

No, you don't need to format it. At least I didn't. Just delete the com.spotify.music folder under Android\data on all/both SD cards.

I did remove the com.spotify.musical folder many times on both SD and internal memory. However, the ROM update + SD format did work, nothing else did. So the solution is not for everyone the same I guess. However, I agree the app does not clean up correctly, but I didn't actually found the exact root cause.

\android\data\com.spotify.music is the full path.

That folder is located in your phone storage ( internal ) under /data/com.spotify.music and in the sdcard: sdcard/Android/data/com.spotify.music. , you must use a file explorer app (as far as I know galaxy has one by default)

I had the same issue. Tried to clear app data and reinstall several times, and for every iteration the offline synchronization would stop earlier (so I could store fewer tracks each time).

Apparently some sectors on my SD card have become corrupted over time, because what finally helped was a reformat (using Android built-in function) and after the format the total available space had decreased, as if some sectors have been marked bad. Thanks to Sharks99 for this hint.

 

IMHO Spotify should say that there was an unexpected error while writing to the device and advice to check or replace it instead of just claiming the SD card was full. The display of a full disk together with the information "58.5 gigs free" is misleading to say the least.

I documented the erroneous behaviour of Spotify with screenshots, maybe it's of help to others. Texts in the screenshot are German but I've written english descriptions under them.
