    Hi there,

    Unfortunately once the submissions are deleted they are not moved
    to a trash folder instead they are permanently removed. There is no
    way to recover them.

    If you have configured a notification email for the form you can probably
    look into the email's inbox.

    Sorry about this.

    Good to know that you were able to get the data.

    For your convenience it would be ideal if you generate a csv or excel
    export of the submission as a form of backup. You can visit the following
    article on our user guide for the instructions on how to export data:
