Spotify Trashing Hard Drives

When I heard of Spotify installing malware on computers for users who didn't have a paid subscription, I lost a lot of respect for the brand. However, it gets worse as it seems that Spotify excessively writes to hard drives, using up a ton of storage. On various forums, it seems that anywhere from tens to hundreds of gigabytes may be written in an hour because of this. While this is a serious issue, it seems to only be contained to the desktop versions of the apps. If you want to avoid this issue, I would recommend using Spotify through your browser, instead of through the desktop app.
