This is for a SharePoint Team Site on Office 365. One of my user deleted a file from Site Assets, and also deleted it from Recycle Bin and Second Stage Recycle Bin.

I would like to know if there is a way to restore this file? Thank you

If the file/site was deleted not more than 20 days before, you can reach out to Microsoft support (open a ticket with them) and they will be able to restore the file/site for you.

I believe this is the only way to restore.


Once the file is deleted from the Second Stage Recycle Bin, it can't be restored by any means.

The available workaround is to restore it back from any available site backup that has the same file.
