Hi @Sarah


Regarding your question, unfortunately deleting a board is permanent, and deleted boards cannot be recovered, check more information about this topic here

It's possible that your board was closed, not excluded, check how on

If your board was closed, you can reopen it, just follow the steps

Let us know whether we solved your case or not, and we’ll be glad to help you the best way we can.


Best Regards,


Hi Felipe,


thanks for your answer. I checken my activities and surprisingly i did. Not delete the board nor did I close it. I really wonder what happend? Could it be a technical problem?



Hi @Sarah , 


Unfortunately if you have deleted your board we cannot recover this. 

That's why we recommend closing boards,

You can check our Getting Started Guide

We have also Webinars

@Sarah I dont think this helps in this current case, but moving forward you might want to check out Backups for Trello, which lets you restore changes in Trello, I believe including deleted Trello boards!

Hi @Sarah

Sorry to hear you lost your most important Trello board. Although the best practice is to close a board instead of permanently deleting it, things happen and things don't always go as planned.

The Power-Up the company I work for created is called Backups for Trello (thanks for the shoutout, @Brittany Joiner If you have this Power-Up installed, even if you permanently delete a card, list, or board, you can bring it bring it back in just a few clicks. Unfortunately, we can't bring back data from a time before you had our Power-Up installed but going forward this life-saver app can be a good one to have.

Message me if you have any questions!
