How to recover files deleted from your iCloud Drive

Apple’s iCloud Drive lets you securely access all of your documents from your Mac, iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and even a Windows PC. If you need to access a file that you deleted within the last 30 days, you can recover it from iCloud.com. Here’s how:

Sign in to iCloud.com.

    •    Click Settings.

    •    Under Advanced, click Restore Files.

    •    Browse the list of files in the Restore Files window.

After 30 days, files are removed from Restore Files.

(This how-to is based on my experiences and info on Apple’s support pages — where the images sometimes come from.)
