Google Sites are your organization’s intranet platform where you can easily create websites that translate your business workflows and enable smooth collaboration. Now, someone has accidentally deleted a much-accessed resource page or made unwanted edits to a shared site. How do you restore deleted Google Sites? Here are pointers to restore deleted Google sites and to ease recovery using backup of Google Sites:

Recover Corrupted/Deleted Google Sites

Consider a shared site that has been unintentionally or intentionally messed around with. The ONLY way to recover it is via Google’s Version history. This feature is slowly rolling out on a user-by-user basis, first to newly created Sites, then secondly to existing Sites: Google estimates this process will take until the end of 2020 to roll out to all Google Sites. IF Version History is enabled for your Site

  • Use the three-dot More menu and choose Version History.
  • The right-hand panel lists the complete version history of what has changed, and who has changed it.
  • Select an older version that predates the corruption or deletion and click Restore this version.

Limitations of Native Google Site Recovery

  • Likely Unsupported: The version history feature is on an extremely slow rollout and won’t be available to all sites until the end of 2020. 
  • Destructive Restore: Recovery via Version History is convoluted especially if you have created new content in a Site and now want to restore deleted content. You would have to copy the site, and then patch your way using the restored site data and copied data.
  • Limited Restore: No support for bulk recovery.
