If you're a regular user of Spotify (on desktop), you need to understand that it caches your playlist from your hard disk in order that it can quickly playback the songs and never have to stream from other server again. However, should you be running low on harddrive space, you should clear the cache to create way for more important documents. The Spotify desktop client doesn’t include a way to pay off the cache. Here is how you are able to clear Spotify cache in Windows, Mac and Linux.

In Windows

Open Windows Explorer and paste the next line for the folder address bar:

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Spotify\Storage

Replace “USERNAME” together with your Windows login username. Note that this folder is hidden by default, so you have to use the direct hyperlink to reach the cache folder. (Alternatively, you are able to go into the Settings and start “Show Hidden Files, Folders and Drives.”)

Delete each of the files on this folder.

In Mac

Open a terminal and type:

sudo rm -fr /Users/USERNAME/Library/Caches/com.spotify.client/Storage/*

Replace “USERNAME” using your login username.

In Linux

Open a terminal and type the next:

sudo rm -rf ~/.cache/spotify/Storage/*

Note: The above methods only work in case you didn’t customize the destination with the cache folder. If you've changed the cache location, you have to create amendment for the filepath to reflect the brand new location that you have set.


What’s next?


Once you've got cleared the cache, when you run Spotify, it'll re-cache the songs to your system. You might want to go to the “Preferences -> Cache” section to affect the maximum cache size who's can use.

spotify-cache-size

That’s it.
