Force Google Play Music to not *upload* from [this particular computer]

N00b question since I haven't used Google Play's music locker much for some reasons; (I) it drops a lot of tags, (II) my home's upload speed is slow, and (III) not much needed due to Spotify availability. (Besides, (IV) it sometimes throws strange errors which I should have the common sense to ignore, but that just annoy me.)

Nevertheless:
Is there any way to force a local Google Play Music client not to upload, only match? "local client" because I would prefer for this setting not to be for my entire account - I have more bandwidth available elsewhere (off-site backup at mom's, she has an ultra-fast connection).

might solve (1) if you run it as a user which doesn't have write access to your music files.
whatever it does, files will be still intact.
depending on OS, this might not be very easy to achieve seamlessly...

Hardly surprising, albeit refreshing admission ;-)
