    Have you ever deleted a file from iCloud, using either the Files app or directly in another app? Darn if that Recently Deleted folder in Files doesn’t help. But what if you accidentally tap a little fast and off menu, and delete it from the recovery folder?

    Well, you got one more chance.

    Go to Safari and log into your iCloud.com account, go to Account Settings, and check out the Restore Files link at the bottom right of the settings page. Don’t be lazy. They only stick around for 30 days.

    Note: Yes, I just did this. Right after I did a lot of work on a Numbers document. I thought it was a duplicate. Arrggg!

    Very thankful I remembered the Restore Files option in icloud.com, and that it wasn’t just a duplicate of the Recently Deleted folder on the iPad (which I thought it was).

    As you can see, there are other iCloudy things you can restore besides files.
