CMS (Formerly Content Manager): Restoring a Deleted Collection
2 min read
Restore deleted collections from your CMS (Content Management System) backups. Each backup is an archived copy of all your collections. In each backup, you can restore all or only certain collections to override changes made after the backup date. In the collections you restore, all the fields, content, structure, and settings get reverted to the saved version in the backup.
Wix App collections are not affected by backups as they get their content from the relevant app (e.g. Wix Stores, Wix Bookings, Wix Events).
