I deleted a file using the command ‘dbutils.fs.rm’ in Databricks File Storage. Is there a way to retrieve that back?

I used this command and accidentally deleted a file from DBFS. Is there a way to retrieve that file as it is, without changes in the script?

%python dbutils.fs.rm("dbfs:/FileStore/tables/sql/global_franchise/liverpool/location/store_hierarchy/franchise_store_hierarchy_merge_into_ndp.sql", True)

Method 1

Unfortunately, there is no possible way to restore the deleted files from DBFS. Only possible way is to have a backup and restore it to the DBFS.

Please go through the DBFS document for more details.
