Restore or permanently delete items in your team - Zoho WorkDrive

Restore or permanently delete items in your team

Files and folders deleted from Trash in My Folders and Team Folders will be temporarily moved to Deleted Items in Admin Console before they are permanently deleted from your team based on the data retention policy. Team Admins can choose to restore these items during the data retention period.

Support for Data Administration is only available in WorkDrive's Business plan. Learn more about WorkDrive plans and pricing.
