Hi,

if you have deleted it as opposed to deactivated it - sorry to say - you 
will need to reenter the account and its details.  Once you delete an 
account it will be flagged for deletion by the crm deletion service.

If you deactivated it - just re-activate it.

Regards

Mike

When a record is deleted by a user in CRM, it stays in the database until the 
Deletion Service runs and looks in the database for records marked for 
deletion.

If you catch it quickly enough, you can stop the MS CRM Deletion Service on 
the CRM server (I'm not sure how frequently it runs) and then locate the 
account in the database and manually change the value in the 
DeletionStateCode column back to 0.

Chances are however that you probably didn't catch it quickly enough this 
time (maybe this will help in the future), in which case you will have to 
consider restoring your database from a backup. You might also want to 
consider clamping down on the privileges in your security roles so non-admins 
aren't allowed to delete records.

Good luck

It set to delete every two hours.  In the Registry on teh Server you can 
modify that Time for it to run.  Default is 7200 (I believe seconds)

Hi Scott,

In case the person only deactivated the account, then you'll be able to find 
this account in the deactivated view of CRM. 

Otherwise you'll have to follow Matt's advice: Restore backup...

Hey Guys,

I encountered the same error in my enviroment, Seems the receptionist 
managed to delete one of the accounts :-)
But I Changed the "deletionstatecode" from a 2 back to a 0... and was quiet 
happy to see the Accounts, Contacts, Incidents and activities back.
Only thing that is know worrying me is when I try view an activity (Which 
exists in both DB and CRM) it responds with a "Record is Unavailable"...

Anybody know if I am stuffed or still good to try something else?

Regards Jefferson

Well, the problem is, the system undoubtedly set the other, child
records (activities, e.g.)  to a deletionstatecode of 2...  You would
have had to set all of those back.  Personally, I turn off the Deletion
service.  When records are deleted, you start to get orphaned records,
but I that it is preferable to have orphans you can recover than clean
things up automatically...  HTH,
Dave

I have the problem with recovery of related activities.

First I've set the DeletionStateCode for account to 0. Then did the
same for related contacts and activities.
Now I can see the recovered account and contacts but activities don't
appear in the activity or history grid.

Is it impossible to recover the deleted activities?
