How to Restore Deleted Emails in Gmails Within 30 Days
If you simply delete an email, it stays in your Trash for 30 days. Or if you mark an email as spam, it also stays in the Spam folder for 30 days. In this period, you can recover deleted emails in Gmail through the ways below.
Gmail service "Mail & Spam & Trash" can be very helpful in finding emails among the spam. It's better to search for emails on a computer rather than via a mobile app since some of the features aren't available in the latter.
Step 1. On your computer, open Gmail. In the search box, click the Down arrow.
Step 2. Click the "All Mail" drop-down, then select "Mail & Spam & Trash".
Step 3. Enter some information that's in the missing email, for example, "From who", or "To who". (Here we take Google for example.) If you're not sure about exact words or details, leave the fields blank.
Step 4. At the bottom of the box, click "Search". Then, all of your deleted emails will be revealed. You can get them back easily.
Method 2. Retrieve Deleted Gmail Emails by Editing/Deleting Filter
You may have created a filter that automatically archives or deletes certain emails. You can check your filter with the steps below:
Step 1. Open Gmail from a browser. In the top right, click the "Settings" icon and then select "Settings".
Step 2. At the top, click the "Filters and Blocked Addresses" tab. Look for filters that include the words "Delete it" or "Skip Inbox".
Step 3. To the right, click "Edit" or "Delete". If you choose "Edit", click "Continue" to edit the Filter.
Step 4. Uncheck "Skip the Index" and "Delete it > "Update filter".
Step 5. If you choose "Delete", select "Delete" > click "OK" to confirm.
Method 3. Restore Deleted Emails from Gmail Trash Folder
Some users may have hidden the Gmail trashes, and this method will help you to unhide them and help you restore deleted emails in Gmail from Trash.
Step 1. Open your Gmail account and sign in > click on "Settings" > "Labels" > "Show". This will show your Trash folder on the left pane of the Gmail window.
Step 2. Now you can see all deleted email files in the "Trash" folder. Select or check the wanted email and files, click on the mail icon at the top of the window with "Move To" words so to move your deleted emails to the Inbox.
How to Recover Permanently Deleted Emails from Gmail After 30 Days
As said before, If you delete an email, it goes to the Trash folder for 30 days. After 30 days, emails are permanently deleted from the Trash. Is it possible to recover permanently deleted emails in Gmail? Yes. If the deleted emails are not located in the Trash folder, your email host may have a copy of your emails. See how to do it with step-by-step guides.
Method 1. Recover Permanently Deleted Emails from Gmail Server
- If your emails are deleted from the server, Gmail (free version) is unable to restore them for you. If you are a Google Apps user, they do offer that option.
- There's only one copy of every Gmail email. If you deleted an email from one place, like a label or a device, it is deleted from Gmail entirely.
- Gmail groups all replies to an original email together in a single conversation. When you click or tap delete, the entire conversation is deleted, including the original email and any replies.
The steps we talk about are similar to Method 1 in the front part. You can go back to check the detailed steps.
Method 2. Recover Permanently Deleted Emails in Gmail from Gmail Support Team
Another way to recover permanently deleted emails in Gmail is by sending a request to the Gmail Support Team to ask it to recover your deleted emails. This method is not 100% effective. It works better for Gmail account being attacked.
Step 1. Sign in to your Gmail account. Open the following form.
Step 2. Fill in the form with all the necessary information, such as describe the problem you have.
Step 3. Click "Submit" after all the information is filled in.
Is It Possible to Recover Deleted Gmails with Data Recovery Software
If you lost a locally saved email file saved on your computer, not in the browser or Gmail app, EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard can help restore it from your local PC or storage devices. This tool enables you to recover permanently deleted files from HDD, SSD, external hard drive, USB flash drive, etc.
What about using any of the data recovery products to recover deleted emails in the Gmail account? No chance! It's impossible to recover deleted emails from Gmail, Thunderbird, or other email applications by using data recovery software, let alone the permanently deleted messages. You can see the reasons explained below.
1. Emails are not files; they are stored in the email database file.
Data recovery software or tool can only scan and find lost files saved on your local drive-in PC or storage devices.
2. Removing these emails only changes the contents of the database file.
It's similar to how you edit a word document, deleting one or a few words inside it and saving the changes, but the text itself is still there, and it is not lost.
3. No data recovery software can retrieve previously deleted content from existing files.
As far as we know, currently, no data recovery software can retrieve previously deleted content from existing files. So it is to email recovery software, not even a tiny chance to restore permanently removed email files.
4. The database is an exception.
As long as there is a transaction log or backup, you can recover the deleted data by rolling back the log or restore the backup. But our data recovery software - EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard or other similar programs is unable to do that.
Additional Tip - Recover Permanently Deleted Emails with Software
Although it's impossible to recover Gmail with data recovery software, you can recover Outlook emails with data recovery software. There are two types of Outlook data files used by Outlook, .pst and .ost. EaseUS file recovery software supports both PST file recovery and OST file recovery. You can quickly restore the emails that you've deleted on a local drive; even the PST/OST files are permanently gone.
Step 1. Choose the drive "X": where your lost email files were saved, and click "Scan".
Step 2. The software will initiate a scanning process immediately. Wait patiently until the scanning process completes. To quickly locate the email files, you can click "Filter" > check "Emails" > select tree view, or directly search a specified file extension, such as .pst, .ost, etc.
Step 3. In the filtered results, choose the desired email files and click "Recover". Save the recovered files to another location.
