PowerShell command to restore deleted sub site

sns 9,226 Reputation points

We have verified audit log also not enabled so we can not know who deleted it.

I have verified it is not there in either of the recyle bin

is there any to find out who deleted it?

& if no PowerShell commad , do we need to restore using Db backup only? pLease confirm

in case if it is Db back up method, how we can restore the sub site to same site collection as it allows only 1 record of site collection when we mount the Db to same or different web application

It is SharePoint 2016

    1.Go to site contents -> Recycle Bin -> Check whether the sub site exists here.

    Go to site collection -> Site settings -> Recycle Bin -> Check whether the sub site exists here.

    If sub site does not exist in both recycle bins, there is no PowerShell to restore it.

    2.You could backup a sub site through recover data from an unattached content database. Go to Central Administration -> Backup and Restore -> Recover data from an unattached content database -> Export site or list. Then restore the sub site to the site collection.
