How to recover deleted notes and files from the Trash

If you've accidentally deleted something in Nebo, you can easily recover it from the Trash. Please note that notes or files in the Trash can not be open or edited, you need to recover them first.

How recovery works in Nebo's Trash

When you delete content from your Library, Nebo creates a stand-in or placeholder for it in the Trash. This makes it easier to remember where the deleted content was originally located. So, if you delete a page from a notebook, Nebo moves it into a copy of that notebook in the Trash. The same occurs if you delete an entire notebook from a collection.

Recovering your content is just as straightforward. When you restore items from the Trash, Nebo returns them to their former place in the Library. If you restore a page, it goes back to its original notebook. If it's a notebook you're recovering, it'll find its way back to its original collection. Once the last item from a placeholder is restored, the placeholder is removed from the Trash, keeping things tidy.

Recovering deleted collections

You can recover a complete collection from the Trash with all its deleted notebooks and pages. However, you can't recover multiple collections at once, each must be recovered independently.

To recover a deleted collection:

  1. Open Trash in the navigation menu.
  2. Depending on your device:
    • Apple — Swipe left (or press & hold) on the collection you want to recover.
    • Android — Tap the ⋮ button on the collection you want to recover.
    • Windows — Press & hold the collection you want to recover.
  3. Tap Recover.
