Know this is a long shot but.... I've accidentally deleted a playlist I've spent weeks working on. Is there any way of getting it back?
It's called 'Boat party' and there was about 100 songs on it. Thanks.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Have done the same when syncing my IPAD, in error I deleted my playlist named: Topsoil, and when it synced all it was gone on my computer as well. I'm not so lucky I have Apple on the computer it's Microsoft, my account name is : stefanlrabt.
Premium subscriber, what can you do possibly to get it back?
Many thanks for trying

If you've found you accidentally deleted a playlist, I recommend filling out our contact form.
As this thread grows we're less able to help with each post. Not to worry though. A member of our support team will look at your case and see what can be recovered.

Are you the guy with super powers, that can restore deletet playlists?
I just made the same mistake, like many other users. Updatet to Unlimitet, and then wantet to resync my files on my iphone, to get the files in high quality. Then i stupidly pressed delete playlist, not knowing that also my playlist on my laptop was deletet.
I've been able to find the BNK playlist file on my laptop, but i'm not able to open it?
could you please help me?
Sorry about my english, i'm from Denmark.

I accidentally just deleted one of my playlists. The title of it is a music note (dot) heart (dot) smiley face. Would you mind recovering that for me? Thanks so much!
Edit* recovered it myself as well. if you have Spotify linked with facebook, you can click on a song in your playlist, and your playlist will open up in Spotify. Click the title of the playlist and drag it into your sidebar of playlists. Enjoy! :)

Eriksen - I think I've just done it for you. If you log out and in again, you should be ok.
Devonhendy - Jeez, can totally understand that. Think I've got it. Just click on this... erica
Lillstrumpan - I think I've just reversed it. Like Eriksen, just log out and in again.

Hi dommue91- I've just had a look at your account and I can see 46 active playlists. Are you not seeing any of these?
Please try shutting down the app and signing back in with your Facebook email/ password. I also recommend a clean resintallation of the app on your desktop. You can find instructions right here.

mattblank - here's all the tracks, just copy-paste the lot into your playlist:
Dresius - it looks like that playlist has 513 tracks in it, is that not correct? I've tried updating it anyway, so try logging out and in again.
Brentmcgill757 - is this the one? Sweet Melodies

Hi elvind2k & mrowen83- I've got emails on their way to both of you with those playlists.
I hope this helps. Let us know if you need anything else!
16-05-2012 08:00 AM
Hi jlusby- Please log out and log back into your app. You should find those stereotypically 80's tracks are back!
As far as the 'confirm' button I don't believe that's ever been an option when deleting just one track. However, when you delete a playlist you're given the option to 'Keep' or 'Delete' before that deletion goes through.

i have no idea what's happening with spotify all of a sudden. first it does not sync AT ALL or recgonize any new playlists i make. then after spending 2 days on a playlist, it gets deleted! the playlist was called "frost on my sunglasses" or "test" (because i had to copy it several times in an attempt to get spotify to recognize it.
can you help me get them back?
05-06-2012 10:19 AM
Morning all. Let's get to it..
madmimi85 - we had some playlist issues yesterday. Are your playlists back now?
Beckzation - how do things look now? I tried restoring a few things for you.
Fenzitter - the Library is composed up of all the songs in your playlists, downloads, inbox and so on. So you can use them to create new playlists if you like. How are you getting on with things?
1dude01 - I've restored a few things now. All better?

I accidently deleted my playlist thinking I was deleting a song from it. It is called "Playlist"
Can you do something for me ? Thank you.
Should be back now!
21-06-2012 02:39 PM
While at the moment there isn't an option to make deleting playlists password protected, it might worth adding it to our Ideas Section. We can then get a feel for how many other users would find this helpful.
RyanCaren- Your "YEAH BUDDDDY" playlist should be restored now. However, I want to be sure you're aware you've got two accounts with us.
One has the username 'ryancaren' username, while the other is linked to your Facebook (this has the YEAH BUDDDDY playlist). If you'd like to use just one let me know--I can send you can email wiith some more instructions.

I get following message: An Unexpected Error has occurred.
- Sorry, your request failed. A notification has been sent to the development team for investigation.
Exception ID: 7743DA6B
So that's not the one.. :)
Oh man, totally messed that one up.
Try + instead.

I accidentally deleted a collaborative playlist called "mondayproof". Is it possible to have it restored ?
If I go in offline mode on a PC where it is still in my profile, will I be able to make a copy of it before going online ?
26-06-2012 05:42 PM
accidentally deleted almost all my starred songs on spotify, please help.
They should be returned to you now.
29-06-2012 09:22 AM
Harrysmith45, Pants973 & Jerrycraven - Just added them all back to your accounts, just log out and in again. Should be there waiting, smiling.
02-07-2012 06:44 AM
Morning ladies and gentlemen, let's get to it then.
Zyfnix - Done.
cimbom - It looks like there's been some recent playlist activity on your account - is it back now? If not, just let me know the name and I'll dig around for it.
JanaeLawrence - This should be restored now.
Olle - I've restored this too.
Thanks, it's been real.
03-07-2012 10:12 AM
Hey jmendes5 - I've reverted your playlists back to an earlier state before things went missing. I hope that helps.
If you ever need to backup your playlists just drag them out onto your desktop and store them somewhere safe. You can restore them later at any time.
05-07-2012 06:37 AM
irontusk - I've just censored that for you. But don't worry, I've restored the playlist for you.
Bond_James_Bond - I've restored that playlist for you; shaken, not stirred.
10-07-2012 07:39 AM
Fattar0, Focusandflow, Awesomelygood, geraldMang,
Just sign out and sign back in to see them in your app again.
10-07-2012 08:03 AM
Hi fattar0 - It appears as though you've placed it in one of your playlist folders. Please have a look and let me know if you still can't find it.
11-07-2012 08:41 PM
I accidentally deleted my playlist "West Coast" 5 minutes ago, any chance that you can recover it for me?
my username should be firstname.lastname@example.org (account created via facebook)
thanks in advance,
15-07-2012 03:10 PM
I had a playlist called Gnål og mas (not the one I have with same name)....
Is it possible to get it back? Yesterday it was just gone...
With my Sonos it is now impossible to browse or play with Spotify....
I've restored the playlist for you. You should get in touch through our contact form for the Sonos issue.

Hey all, I'm afraid we're a bit overwhelmed with posts here so won't be able to help everyone out individually. Trust us, it'd be a mess.
If you're missing playlists please get in touch through our contact form and we'll try to get to you asap. You'll probably get a faster response this way, in fact.
hpguru - when you delete a playlist, a pop-up asks you 'Do you really want to delete this playlist?' - so this should be enough to stop accidental deletions.
Remember, you can backup your playlists at any time by dragging them out to the desktop. Clicking on them from there will launch them in Spotify.
19-07-2012 08:27 AM
Hi everyone - As Richard noted above, it's best if you get in touch through our contact form if you're missing any playlists.
As this thread grows the moderators won't be able to help everyone out individually.
Please note you can also backup your playlists by dragging them out to the desktop. Clicking on them from there will launch them in Spotify.

Hi everyone - Alright, I've tried to update everyone's playlists since Dave's last post. Try signing back in to see if your missing playlist has returned.
I've also got some specific instructions for a few of you:
aled02& jeramo - It seems you've created two accounts. Please see Richard's post here for futher instruction: http://community.spotify.com/t5/Accounts-Subscript
sweet-angel93 & Nthomas - You've also made two accounts. However, all your playlists are on the extra FB account. Just head over to the contact form so we can help.
