    Hi @Krishan Wellala ,

    if you say "deleted a program" you mean you deinstalled it? Or just deleted the files/folders with the program files?
    Do you a backup of the VM, for instance with Azure Backup?

    Otherwise, I am afraid you need to install the program again on your VM.

    Hi @Krishan Wellala ,

    if the VM is backed up by Azure Backup you can restore a backup in the Azure Portal:

    Hi @Krishan Wellala ,

    based on your screenshot you are right. The VM isn't backed up with Azure Backup.

    If there is no other backup solution is used there is no option to restore the VM from a backup.
    Maybe you could ask someone who is responsible for the VMs and their backups now?

    Hi @Krishan Wellala ,

    without a backup created before it's not possible to restore a VM.

    You could open a support request in Azure. But I am afraid without an existing backup it's not possible to restore the VM.
    Azure plans: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/support/plans/
    Create an Azure support request: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-portal/supportability/how-to-create-azure-support-request
