Move Your Spotify Cache Folder
Here’s a quick tip.
If you’re using a solid state drive then you are probably trying to scrounge as much free space particularly if you’ve only got a 64GB or 128GB solid state drive. If you’ve got a hard drive then you’ve probably shifted larger stuff over to it that doesn’t require the speed as much as frequently used applications.
The Spotify cache is perhaps something that falls into that bucket and it is a snap to move it as follows:
- Open Spotify,
- Stop any music if any might be playing,
- Click Edit,
- Click Preferences,
- Scroll down to the Cache section,
- Next to Location click Browse,
- Select the new location of the cache (or create a new folder to contain the cache),
- Click OK.
That’s all you need to do and Spotify should remove its cache files from its original location without manual intervention.

I love technology, gadgets, and the Internet and maintain a keen interest in these areas locally, nationally, and globally. I hope by sharing my views on these topics that people will receive an honest point of view from someone with a genuine interest in these topics.
