Drive Rescue normally performs data recovery from physical storage devices such as hard disks, SSDs, USB, memory cards, servers and NAS devices. But last week, a customer from an island off the west coast of Ireland called us desperately wanting to know how to recover deleted emails from their Gmail (for business /GSuite account). Thankfully, Gmail stores deleted emails for the last 30 days. Moreover, the data recovery process for this is a cinch.
To recover deleted emails from Gmail (GSuite Edition) is relatively painless.
1) Login to the account needing recovery at: admin.google.com
2) Click on More
3) Click on Restore Data
4) Select the Data Range (remember 30 days is the maximum amount of time you can wind back to)
5) Select the application. Google Drive is the pre-selected as the default, but using the drop-down arrow, you can select Gmail.
6) Click on Restore.
7) Your deleted emails from the last 30 days should now be recovered.
The same more process can be followed for recovering data deleted from Google Drive. You just select “Drive” instead of Gmail. Easy peasy!
