Recover a deleted card

I'm new to Trello, and just deleted a card that I really really didn't want to delete. Is there any way of accessing deleted cards?

If you actually archived it, you can recover it from your archived list. However if you truly deleted it, that's a non recoverable action. 

Big bummer. I hope they might consider making a recoverable trash bin for these times. Oy. Thanks for the confirmation of my suspicion.

+1 the trash bin for deleted cards.

Someone on our team deleted a card by mistake, now we cannot recover it, that's really sad

If you haven't closed the browser tab (at least in Chrome this works), you can use your browser back button to navigate back to the opened card and copy it. That just save me.

Another +1 for a trash bin. I should be able to, as an administrator, not allow other users to delete cards. This becomes a cash payment risk should cards end up being deleted after receiving a cash payment to cover up trace of the job.

I deleted a card and it was lost for good. However by going to the Board's Activity log, I was able to see all of the transactions to the card that I lost going back quite a while. I was able to get all of the info I had lost, and recreate the card. It's not quite as good as recovering what was deleted, but at least  it's better than a complete loss.

The best solution for this is to integrate Slack power-up and set up alerts for any changes you do. You will have the history of that card on Slack along with all the description, checklists, actions you did.

Really saved my life today!
