Recover deleted instance
If an instance is deleted, it is deleted permanently. Could you please provide a recover from trash option if possible?
Based on a small number of customer requests, I am moving this from Declined to Under Review so we can accept further votes and feedback on whether some kind of “undelete” would be valuable.

I need this at this moment!... I accidentally deleted!
Just recently deleted wrong instance and restore possibility would be appreciated at the moment.

This would definitely be preferable. Sometimes problems happen.
yup it happened to me as well, accidentally deleted a VM, it would be really nice to have a recovery option like how we can recover deleted projects
I accidentally deleted a version of snapshot can I get it back?
I accidentally deleted a VM instead of stopping it. I am so screwed since it had a month of work. A trash bin would be really nice.

the feature is important, we need to recover the trashed instance
I delete one of my instances accidentally. :(
Hey I just that costly mistake of deleting the VM instead of stopping it. Now I have lost many hours of my work. Please bring this feature ASAP.

this is so sad, you can not recover the deleted vm, I read a article where mentioned you have 15 days backup of vm. i think Aws is better option

Seems like a feature to be offered to save from human error..a new admin on my team accidentally deleted it instead of resetting the VM.. some of the data was kept only on VM :(.. It could even be a timed support say "undelete within x hours" as in most probability the goof up is noticed in few minutes!
I just accidentally deleted a VM that I didn't have a snapshot. UnDelete feature needs to be added asp.
Thanks for the continued comments on this option. We're considering this on our backlog, but don't have any ETA to share at this time. Contrary to commentary here, it is not "as simple as one line of code" for many reasons, but we're looking at possible designs. I we hope that we can offer this in the future.
I deleted my instance; I think it should make a Bin or trash at least for certain amount of time.
Is a Full stack compute engine.
You could keep deleted VM alive for 30 minutes. So that if I clicked mistakenly on the delete button, I could go back and restore it. Is this that hard? This can be done in one line of code and no additional resources (compared to the deception of recreating the new instance.. etc) I guess.
omg this needs to be added asp i accidentally deleted my instance that i have been setting up for a day

This feature really seems overkill but would be a perfect solution to temporarily fix any possible human errors.
In our use case, we sometimes create and remove lots of instances to save time and test different configurations. We're always dead worried not to mistakenly remove a live instance.
This feature would be great, being able to recover a deleted instance for a duration of like 15 minutes after the deletion.
I'm +1 for this feature.
I just accidentally deleted a VM that I didn't have a snapshot for or persistent disk backup.
Even a dialog pop-up of "Are you sure you want to delete instance ..." would be nice. You are prompted when deleting an instance using the gcloud command.
