Trying to recover a deleted powerapp

I have accidentally deleted a powerapp and am desperate to recover it. I have followed the instructions on this page but when I try to list all deleted apps, the command returns nothing. Is it possible to restore the deleted apps in any way?

Glad to hear that @Siamak - I hope they manage to recover your app today!

Ok @timl  Microsoft support guys asked for a lot of information, including the date/time of deletion which I don't know. Also the ID of the app which I did find fortunately. Then they asked me to use the PowerShell command with the new information I had dug up. And it worked - at least till I discovered I am not the tenant admin. 😞 So need to report the problem to administrator in my organisation. As you said, though, Microsoft support guys are good at responding - something I hadn't quite expected. Thanks for your advice and help

Ok, the last update on this. Microsoft support informed me that deleted apps are recoverable only within 28 days! As they couldn't see my deleted app, I assume I missed that window and am re-writing the whole thing 😞 Oh well, I am going to take my own backups from now on, just in case. Thank you everyone for your help
