oh ((( no external backups … ok , thanx

Hey friend,

I’m very sorry to hear about that. The only options you’re going to have for recovery are:

  1. If you made any snapshots with us, you may still have those.
  2. Any external backups that you’ve made.

Once the droplet has been destroyed, it’s contents have been completely wiped.
