I’ve searched through the web to reset my droplet and advised to Open droplet options and click on destroy to reset. I clicked destroy and now I am not being able to see the droplet anymore. Can you please guide me from where I can get my droplet back in default condition?

Hi @junaidqureshi,

Destroying the droplet actually deletes it and everything on it. If you want to get it back and have created Snapshots, you can actually restore it from your control panel. If you haven’t created any snapshots, now that’s a problem as most probably you won’t be able to have the Droplet restored. Your only option would be to contact support at the following link

It’s possible there are any backups by chance however it’s not 100% guaranteed at all.

Now for the reset, you can check the following Documentation :
