ARCHIVED: At IU, how do I recover files or email deleted from UITS central systems?

You can recover deleted content from some UITS systems; see below. Note that some systems may not offer file recovery.

On this page:


Canvas

See In Canvas, how do I recover missing, deleted, or overwritten content?

Exchange

UITS does not offer file recovery from the server for individual IU Exchange mailboxes. However, you can recover items from your IU Exchange mailbox up to 180 days after they are deleted.

Warning:
When mail is deleted from Mac OS X Mail, the messages go to the Trash folder as usual. However, messages deleted from this folder do not go to the Exchange retention area, and they are not recoverable. Additionally, mail that is hard-deleted via Option-Delete skips the Trash folder and also does not go into the retention area.

Webserve
