Can I recover database from deleted droplet

I deleted my droplet as we were not yet ready to continue hosting using the DO server as a test environment. However, I completely forgot that the database of the application was also hosted on the droplet. Now the application has no database and data. Is there anyway to recover the database in a deleted droplet or is there anyway to recover data from a deleted droplet?

Hi @fabuCoral,

If you haven’t generated any backups for your droplet, then it’s highly unlikely for one to be available. Additionally, even if there are you’ll receive a backup of the droplet and then you’ll need to actually take the database from there.

Having said that, I’ll recommend contacting the support immediately to see if anything can be done in your case, however I wouldn’t get my hopes up.
