How To Recover Deleted Items in Gmail

Gmail is one of the most popular webmail systems in the world. Powered by Google, Gmail offers its users a huge amount of storage space for saving emails and important files online. Furthermore, if you accidentally delete a file or message, Gmail offers you an easy way to recover your files.

How To Recover Deleted Gmail Messages

After deleting an email, the message is stored in your Trash for up to 30 days following deletion. Recovery of these messages is very simple, as your trash folder lies just under your email folders and subfolders.

Log in to your Gmail account. Once logged in, you will arrive at your main interface, which contains a list of your folders and subfolders:

Click the More option below your folders. Four additional options should appear, including Chats, All mail, Spam, and Trash.

Click your Trash button. Any items deleted within a 30 day time span will be listed. Simply click the item that you'd like to recover, and then click Move to Inbox.
