Can you recover deleted responses on Microsoft Forms?

Copper Contributor

I have duplicated a form to edit and the responses from the original form were copied over. I have then deleted the responses off the new form and didn't realise this would delete the responses on the old form. Is there any way of restoring the responses?

@GraceLilley unfortunately there is no way to recover deleted responses. It's one of the reasons that at my company we always use a flow in Power Automate to save responses to a SharePoint list as backup. There is a Forms uservoice request for recovering deleted responses which you can vote for here.

Yes, unfortunately this is still the situation.
Thank you. That's very unfortunate.
