  • No, there is no method out of the box to directly restore views. If you have a content database, site collection, web application, or farm backup, you can restore these to restore the view however keep in mind that these backups will restore other content and configurations as well overwriting any changes made in your environment since the view was deleted.

    You'll need to recreate the view manually. If you don't recall how it was configured you could restore one of the above mentioned backups to a different farm and copy the settings from the restored farm to your actual farm.

    There are some third party tools that can restore view but these require being installed and performing a successful backup before restoring ;)
