Can a deleted repository be restored?

I create a repository on BitBucket Cloud yesterday using SourceTree. I had added a .gitignore file because I did not want pdf file to be committed, but I made a mistake and the pdf files got committed anyway.

Rather than deleting the files and their history using BFD repo cleanup tool I am considering deleting the repository and starting from scratch. Before I do that, I would like to be sure though, that

  1.     a deleted repository cannot be restored.
  2.     I can reuse the repository name without SourceTree, BitBucket Cloud or git having problems

 

If you know the answer to my questions, please reply.

Thanks

Ute

  1. Once deleted, a repository cannot be restored.
  2. You can reuse the repository name for a new repository without issue.

 

Why not create another test repository and try it? :smile: That way you don't have to take anybodies word for it.
