  • Hi Prashanth,

    Do you want to restore lib1?

    Have the Recycle Bin turned on in that site collection? If yes, you can restore lib1 in Recycle Bin of that site. (Site Actions > Site Settings > top site > Recycle Bin under Site Collection Administration)
    If you saved document library as template with contents included, you can create a library with the same structure and contents as lib1. If not, you can only create the library with the same structure but no documents in it.

    Best regards,
    Emir

  • It's now listed in the options (for which template to use) when you create a new List.
