If you do not have G Suite backup, your recovery options are time-bound.

  • You can restore Contacts only up to 30 days prior.
  • Ask the user to sign in to their G Suite account.
  • Go to the G Suite Contacts app and select Undo changes in the top right corner
  • Select the date and time that the user needs to roll back to. That is, the date before the contacts were deleted.
