Hello Guys, Welcome to my tutorials on Google apps. In this tutorial i will tell you how you can restore a recently deleted user. Please note that you can only restore a user has been deleted in last 5 days. So when you go to Users console here you can select Recently deleted users from the drop-down. If you would have deleted the user with in 5 days. Then you see there will be a user here in the deleted list. Select the user and option pops-up here i.e Undelete user . You can click on undelete user. You see this message here “User account restore has been initiated, please wait for 2 hours for complete restore of account”. Now when you go to the list of active users you see the account is already there though it say that it will take 2 hours but it happens instantly, but it can some time as long as 2 hours that is what the message explains. So if you click on the user now. It has reverted back to active state.

Thank you
