Restore Items from Trash

Is a page restored including all attachments, comments and versions?

When does an attachment show up in the space trash? (I assume that only attachments deleted manually show up there?)

What happens to an attachment in trash when it's 'hosting page' (i.e. the one it was attached to) is deleted?

Any further items show up in the Space trash?

Hi Anne,

Yes, a restored page includes all attachments, comments, and previous versions. Starting in Confluence 5.8, individually deleted attachments will appear in the space's trash and the attachment can be restored on its own by an administrator of the space.

If a page with an attachment is deleted, the attachment will be restored if the page is restored, however, the attachment itself will not be available to be restored on its own.

Here are some links for further information on Deleting and Restoring a Page, and Deleting Attachments.
