  • Only option that I'm aware of is to restore data from a backup.  There isn't an "undo" for bulk deletion.

     

    Since it has been a month ago - I'd ensure that good records entered since then are preserved and only the deleted ones are brought back.  This would take more effort

  • No there is no workaround in crm2011 except backups. All deletions are hard deletion in crm2011, if you were using crm4.0 you could have recover them upto few hours after deletions.

  • Hi,

    Yes you can not recover the records without restoring the Dynamics CRM 2011 old database backup.

  • Hi,

    If it is CRM 4.0 then try using the following simple add-on (http://crmrecycle.codeplex.com/) for recovering delted records (CRM service mark record in table as delete (soft delete) and permanently deletes once the maintenance service schedule runs.

    There is no gurante that the data will be available for reovery.

  • Hi,

    The tool will recover only if the records are not permanently deleted from the database, in CRM 4.0 every record is marked as soft delete and will be permanently form the database when CRM deletion maintenance service/job will start the executing so there may be a chance of records recovery and the tool is good for CRM 4.0 deployments to recover accidently deleted data.
