    Hi @michael lustig

    How did you delete these meetings(Delete or Permanently delete)?

    If you delete the meeting via Delete option only, these items would be moved to Deleted item folder and we could move them back to restore it like below(right-click the item>move>calendar):

    If you have performed a Permanently delete and you are working with exchange account, we could first Recover items recently removed from this folder like below, then continue to move them to calendar as I mentioned above

    Hope that would be helpful to you.

    I found a way to replicate a deleted Teams meeting, preserving the Teams meeting ID (so that participants can join using the same URL/Meeting ID+Password. Step by step:

    1. Create a new Outlook calendar event without making it a Teams meeting event. You can designate any title, time, repetition, participant, but as we're replicating an old Teams meeting it's best to set those to be the same as the deleted Teams meeting. (You can find those info in the Sent folder of the organizer or the Inbox/Deleted items folder of invited participants)
    2. For the content, input anything you want, and at the end paste the Teams information. (The auto-generated text part that starts with "Microsoft Teams meeting - Join from your computer, mobile app or room device, click here to join...")
    3. Now the "Save" button of the Outlook event will have become "Send". Clicking that will send all participants a new Teams meeting invitation (the details of which is set by you in 1.) but the Teams meeting ID and password and chat will be those of the deleted Teams meeting. Now participants can join the deleted meeting (and access the chat, which is usually not deleted) from the new Outlook schedule item (by clicking the link or by cliking the button "Join Teams meeting" in Teams or Outlook)
