  • If you have backups enabled on your droplet you can either restore from a backup or convert one into a snapshot image and deploy it to a new droplet in order to recover the data. If you do not have any type of backup there are few options and those that do exist are not by any means a 100% solution. If that’s the case, this page provides a couple methods that have worked for others.
