I am following https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/b14bc36a-8307-4214-8913-38c742fba6e0/recover-files-deleted-through-csom-sp-online?forum=sharepointdevelopment

but that seems an old discussion, could be outdated now and SharePoint might have some advanced options. So
I still wanted to ask how I can recover the folder and files which are deleted through CSOM DeleteObject()?

Can I raise an MS support ticket to do it? Or any PowerShell scripts Or any other option? Actually, some folders got deleted from the production site, we have backups but wanted to take an easy and quick way to recover.
Kindly answer asap as it's urgent.

    Hi @Tarak Dave ,
    As far as I know, there is no such way to recover the folders/files deleted by DeleteObject().DeleteObject() calls a hard delete within the API and by-passes the Recycle Bin.You may get your files by using a recovery program.
