I'm pretty sure the devs just didn't consider the possibility that some users saved in this way.  Which is kinda crazy since the feature that added the ability to drag directly to Library wasn't around in the old pre-0.8.8 versions.  It was added at some point.

 

That said, go to the Contact Form, explain your dilemma, and they'll get it back for you.  When you receive the "No-Reply" confirmation email, reply to it.

Unfortunately, no.  I also have hundreds, but already had them in Genre folders, so it was quick and painless.  You may want to consider doing a complete reorganization, this would be a perfect opportunity to do so, but I'm just OCD like that.

Here is the quickest way to fix that worked for me. 
I created a FOLDER callled master, and then moved all playlists into that. I then created a PLAYLIST called Master and dragged that folder into it. Which allowed me to copy all songs at once. Of course now I will have to update this periodically. Incredibly annoying.

Spotify needs to find a way to return functionality that lets you shuffle your entire library,

They're all still there, you just can't access them at the moment.

 

Do this.

 

  • Download the official full installer from this link.  http://download.spotify.com/Spotify%20Installer.exe  Install it with your internet connection OFF, in case it updates on install.  As of this moment, the link still points to 0.9.7.  That will change eventually.
  • Effective today, the full installer link points to the updated version.  Go to Filehorse or Filehippo, download an older version, install it with your internet connection off.
  • Turn your internet back on, then login.
  • Wait for all playlists to load into the left sidebar, shouldn't take long, depends on the size of your Library
  • Go to Library and drag it into a new playlist.  This of course will include not only songs you've save directly to Library, but any playlists too.  And it won't likely be very organized.  You may want to sort it by artist or something like that.
  • Eventually, do a restart, it will probably update to the new version.

Even doing this is no good for me, as now I have hundreds of duplicate tracks in the playlist for all music. I had just over 2K tracks in my library, but now I have 2917, with at least 200 duplicates. Some songs are now listed 2 or 3 times. The removal of the library feature has really **bleep**ed my music up. If it isn't brought back, I will definitely end up going from premium to a free user, only using spotify once or twice a month.
