To clarify, you are missing emails that are in your Gmail account and you wish to retrieve these.

Is this correct?

No , actually I have several chats , emails etc in the gmail account and I deleted them all , cleared from trash as well , now my gmail looks all blank each and every tab is blank.


Now I requested gmail to restore my deleted email of which they have restored the emails but my problem is related to particular user name : chat and email from particular user are NOT restored , rest all have been re-stored .


I used to chat with that user name for around 1.5 yrs in restore I can see my data for last 5 years except this particulat user .


Just confused why this is happening with that particular user only ....and I have confirmed that the user account is still active so in google re-store I shall get all the data back why this particular id data is missing ?


and + 1 particular email is missing which was at my inbox between 25th 27th dec 2013 - 2Jan 14


Rest all the data is perfectly re-stored?


Any clues ???


This is regarding gmail account.

It would have been that the emails from that particular user were not recoverable Ajay.

Not everything can be recovered if it is removed from the server already.

As it is just that one user, it may be an issue with their account on the server that caused this.

But if you requested all emails and chats to be recovered, and this was not included, then it would not have been possible as it would have been missing from the server. It is the only reason they would not recover it.

If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Can normal user get his emails deleted from server , I mean the record would be on my name how can anyone go on google server and delete particular user emails ? Can that generally happen ?



Google could do it, they are the only ones that can.

If the user seriously violated the terms and conditions it is possible.

I am only saying this is a potential reason for why the emails were removed from the server and were not recoverable.

does it require any court order or proof or request google and they will simply do it for anyone?

If Google themselves decided to, they would just do it. It is very rare, but it is their email server so they can choose themselves.

If they were forced to, it would need to be a court order, and even then it is tough.

I really believe the data was just gone from the recovery server they have. They do not guarantee to recover all content as they do not have the capacity to store everything for an unlimited time Ajay.
