Can I restore deleted Team in Microsoft Teams?

Yes, you can restore a deleted team in Microsoft Teams for 30 days from the deletion date. after that, the deleted team can't be restored!

Note

  • By default, the deleted team will be retained for 30 days ("soft-delete"). After 30 days, the Team and its associated contents
    are deleted and cannot be restored permanently.
  • It's recommended to first archive the out-of-use Teams before taking the decision to delete it, then when you're sure that you no
    longer need the team, you can delete it.

2) Restore a deleted Team using Azure Active Directory PowerShell

  1. Open Windows PowerShell As Administrator.
  2. Run the below cmdlet to install the AzureADPreview module.

     Install-Module AzureADPreview
    
  3. Type the below cmdlet to connect to Azure Active Directory.
