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.


oh ((( no external backups .. ok , thanx
