  • HI,

    Column data will not be stored in recycle bin once you have deleted it. You can either recreate it or else if you have backups of your site/db yoiu can restore it and then you can take the data out from your list in spreadsheet and then you can revert back and can apply the data back.

    I hope this will help you out.

    Thanks,

  • Hi,

    I don't think you can restore it from Recycle Bin because recycle bin works for list item only. Now if you have your site backup (daily/weekly/monthly..) then only you can restore your site and get your deleted column back with data.

  • Only way to restore the data of the list is from you backup. If you are taking content DB backups of you site, then restore using that.
