If you want to restore deleted posts and stories on Instagram, then it is also possible. Maybe many of you are not aware, but Instagram has rolled out a feature that allows users to review and restore deleted posts or stories within 24 hours.
As for permanent posted or archived stories, users can restore them within 30 days of deleting them. The social media platform started this feature so that users can get control in case their accounts are hacked, and posts are deleted.
Instagram has created a Recently Deleted folder under this new feature. Even if a user deletes one of his posts, his deleted post will remain in this recently deleted folder of Instagram for 30 days. During this one-month time, the user can restore the post or delete it permanently.
Till now, there was no option to restore deleted posts on Instagram, but now you can get back deleted posts through the Recently Deleted folder. All photos, videos, reels, IGTV videos, and stories that you delete from your app will now be moved to the Recently Deleted folder so that you can access the deleted content again later.
