Can I restore deleted droplet somehow?

A couple of weeks ago we deleted droplet. Now we realized that we didn’t make a copy of all important information from that droplet. Can we somehow restore it? Maybe there is some data storage for stupid clients’ deleted droplets or any other miracles?

Hello, @Victoriya

Unfortunately you can restore your droplet only if you have a snapshot of the droplet in question or you’ve performed a complete backup of the server as well. I’m afraid there is no other automated way to recover your droplet/server without having one of those. Your other way will be to rebuild this from scratch but in case of missing data this scenario is not going to work.
