Restore Deleted Field from List? RRS feed

  • Question

  • A user deleted a field from a SharePoint list which contained important data.  I need to restore this field to the list with the data. I looked into the users recycle bin, although there were many items in there, I did not see the field. What is the procedure to restore this field to back to the original list? 

    Thank you.

  • You must restore the entire list from backup (with data). Individual fields, and the data attached to those fields, is lost when the field is deleted and does not enter any sort of recycle bin.
