ARSDOC Delete - Can a file be 'Undeleted'?
« on: May 27, 2022, 08:53:42 AM »
Someone, (not me) ran the ARSDOC Delete command and fat fingered one of the index values and deleted the wrong document. Is the delete absolutely permanent?  Or, is there any was to 'undelete' the document short of doing a recovery from backup media?

The document is not actually deleted, just the indexes.  You could try to recover that one index from a backup of the AG index table.  Or you could try to recreate the indexes based on the offsets and sizes from the other documents in that specific load.
