Reproducing the Issue

  1. Admin Center > Search by Manage Data;
  2. Select an object > Select an Entry > In take Action option > You have selected Permanently Delete Entry;



It's not possible to recover any data from Manage Data if you have used the Permanently Delete Entry option.

If this entry is critical for your business, analyze if it is placed in another instance and create it again.

Also, you have the possibility to use Instance Sync feature or a full restore process. Both KBAs about each possibility is below.
