Restore deleted files or Team Drives

As a G Suite administrator, you can restore files that were permanently deleted recently. If the entire Team Drive was deleted, you can also restore the Team Drive and its contents.
You can only restore items that were permanently deleted up to approximately 25 days ago (items are permanently deleted after 30 days in the Team Drive trash).
Note: You have a limited time from when the data was permanently deleted to restore files. After that, the data is gone forever unless you have additional Vault policies in place. Learn more
