Spotify doesn't touch your itunes library on the desktop so I guess you're talking about something else. Care to throw out a clue?

basically 

I sent my computer for repair and they sent it back with a new hard drive 

so i lost all my information

 

my old itunes library exists as a playlist on my spotify account

I was wondering if there was a way to export this playlist back into itunes as the files are not on my current computer?

does that make sense?

That won't be possible, since Spotify never acutally stores the files, just a reference to them on your hard drive. So if the tracks are no longer there, Spotify basically points to nothing (eg. can't find the files).

Ah, thanks. No there's no way to extract music files from the spotify cache I'm afraid.

What if the music files are still in the itunes library, it's just the playlists that have been lost? can that info be exported somehow from spotify?

Not as far as I know. You'll need to create the itunes playlists manually.
