How to restore deleted users?

Objective: Restore deleted Active Directory (AD) users from the Recycle Bin.


  1. Click the Management tab.
  2. Go to the User Management category.
  3. Open the Restore Deleted Users link, under the Bulk User Modification sub-category.
  4. Select the domain.
  5. Specify the users you wish to restore by:
    • Importing a CSV file with the AD users listed out.
    • Locating the users using the Search option.
  6. Click Apply to restore the AD users.

The next time you delete user accounts by accident, all you need is ADManager Plus to restore them!


  1. The Recycle Bin feature should be enabled for the configured domain. Only then all the user account attributes will be restored.
  2. If Recycle Bin is not enabled for your domain, user accounts can still be restored but only the mandatory attributes.
  3. The deleted user accounts will be restored with all the attributes intact only in the case of Active Directory 2008 R2 and the above versions with the Recycle Bin feature enabled. In other earlier versions, the user accounts will be restored only with the mandatory attributes.
