Says my recovery email was "disabled" a few years back, how to recover?
0
So basically, my recovery email was "disabled" a few years back and I think it is due to my main email being hacked, and probably my recovery email too because I kept changing passwords but the hacker managed to change it to something else. I was stupid at that time to not know that he probably had access to my recovery email as well. Because I kept getting messages about suspicious logins and activity on the recovery email too. 

So now I wonder whether it is possible to reactivate that email address now that I have gotten back my email address and secured my account. Because I believe I had stored some viable evidence that might help me find out how I was hacked and perhaps by whom. 

If someone from the Gmail support could respond I could provide the gmail address I am trying to recover.

Hi Helpz, this community is the only available support for the free gmail.com accounts.
The only option provided by Google to recover access to a free gmail.com account is to use the Account Recovery form included in the first article listed below.  Before submitting a claim there, please read these articles so that you fully understand the process.  Note that if the form advises that the account can no longer be recovered, that is the end of the line.
There is no other way to recover access.  You can try this morning and night in case the system offers different questions, but no more often as you could get locked out.
 
NOTE: Carefully read the response provided at the end of the process. If you get a response similar to "we have locked the account for your protection", then stop applying or trying to sign in for seven days, then try to sign in again.
