Restoring a Space
Restoring a PageWhen a Wiki page is deleted, it actually does not delete, but instead, it is moved to the trash bin. If you believe there is a page in the trash that you would like to save, more information and instructions for restoring and resurrecting pages can be found in the following article:
At times the Illinois Wiki will undergo a mandatory trash cleanup. It will not be possible to recover pages after they are deleted. Space admins will be notified by email in advance so that they may review their trash and restore any items they may wish to retain.
