How do I keep deleted cards (non-recurring) from coming back? They won't stay deleted.

A couple of weeks ago I deleted a few cards on one of my Trello boards. I logged in today, and they were right back. They are not cards with a recurring due date - they have due date attached at all. 

I tried deleting them again, then I logged out. When I logged back in, all the cards I'd just deleted showed up again. 

I don't want to archive, I want to delete. I can't figure out why my deleted cards keep coming back - why they won't stay deleted. 

I appreciate any help on this issue, thanks!

Hi Elizabeth!


It sounds like you might have the card repeater Power-Up enabled. Do you see a link called Repeats in the top right corner of your board?


If so, you can use that menu to disable the repeat on those cards. You can read a bit more about the Power-Up here:


If you don't actually have that Power-Up enabled, then would you mind reaching out to our Support team directly at, and include a link to one of the cards?
