Hey Owen!

 

I'm afraid Spotify won't have uploaded any of your mp3s to our servers. Spotify will have matched the deleted mp3s to the same or similar version on our database, so your mp3s will not have been saved. Sorry.

How about transferring to them onto a moble device?? I did notice you can transfer them to like an Ipod. Would any other regular .mp play work?? If that the case I may go that route. Thanks for responding.

Hey,

 

You won't be able to transfer Spotify's music like you do mp3's, as they're streamed, encrypted files from the internet and mp3 players aren't compatible. So you can't put Spotify's catalogue on an iPod Classic for example, unless you personally own the music too.

 

However, depending on your mobile device, you will be able to sync 'Offline' songs from your desktop Spotify over. You can check what mobile devices are compatible here: http://www.spotify.com/us/mobile/overview/

 

You can also get a guide on how to sync your devices here: http://www.spotify.com/us/help/faq/ipod-integration/sync-your-device-with-spotify/

 

This last guide is probably worth reading through. It explains it all quite well.

 

Let me know if you have any other questions!

I am having a similar issue. My computer crashed and I needed a new harddrive so I lost all my music files. But they are still available under "Library" for my spotify account. Can I move them back to my computer? It sounds like I can't but that is upsetting :( I had 8,000 songs!

If all your local files are deleted, you won't be able to move these tracks from Spotify to your computer, no.

Sorry to hear about your hard drive. I've been there. Not cool.
