Restore deleted records

Last updated: June 22, 2022

All products and plans

You can use the recycle bin to restore contacts, companies, deals, tickets, and custom object records up to 90 days after they were deleted. You can also view when a record was deleted, and which user deleted it.

When you restore a contact, some of the data associated with them will still be lost. For example, restored contacts will not be in any static lists they were in prior to deletion. Learn more about the implications of deleting contacts and the data that will be lost when contacts are permanently deleted. 

Please note: users need Account access and add and edit users permissions to use the recycle bin. Permanent or GDPR-related deletions will not be held in the recycle bin, and will be permanently deleted with immediate effect in compliance with GDPR.
