Salesforce Announcement

"Effective July 31, 2020, Salesforce has announced that Data Recovery as a paid feature will be deprecated and no longer available as a service."

  • The Salesforce Data Recovery service is an expensive and time consuming process and typically takes 6-8 weeks to complete.
  • Even then, there's no guarantee of 100% data recovery.
  • Salesforce data recovery process doesn't include metadata, only customer data.
  • After 90 days, deleted data is no longer recoverable unless a third party backup system is in place.

Salesforce have recommended that customers keep a regular backup of their data and do a manual point-in-time backup before they proceed with any major data project within their organisation.
