How can we improve Compute Engine?

Recover deleted instance

If an instance is deleted, it is deleted permanently. Could you please provide a recover from trash option if possible?

Thank you.

    This is really worse.. no confirmation when removing cloud sql instance. By one click you can remove accidentially your cloud sql instance and all backups. This would mean out of business for our business and we would be sued for millions of dollars.. google, this is really a must fix, dont you see? Cant even begin to explain how bad design this is. No confirmation and removing backups as well.. its a crazy world

    I am in the same boat as other. I accidently deleted an instance. A recovery tool would be helpful.

    Please add a confirmation message at clicking the delete button :(

    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 VM instead of stopping it. I am so screwed since it had a month of work. A trash bin would be really nice.

    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.
