Q: Help! I accidentally deleted a list in my Mailchimp account, how do I restore it?

 

A:

We’ve got some bad news and good news for you…

Bad news – Mailchimp can’t recover a single account back to a previous point in time or to recover just a selection of your data.

Mailchimp maintains the disaster recovery backup for their entire infrastructure. But they lack the ability to restore data on an individual account level. In this case, a deleted list. It’s Mailchimp’s responsibility to backup the entire platform, but it’s your responsibility to back up your company data.

Good news – That’s where Rewind’s automatic backups for Mailchimp can give you the freedom to recover lost or deleted data such as lists, interest categories, and segments. Rewind significantly reduces the risk of data loss and removes the burden on your team to maintain daily backups.

Rewind gives you the ability to restore deleted data from your backup in two ways:

1. Rewind an item: Sometimes you want to undo just one change in your account, without losing all of the work that followed. In this case, search for the list you want to Rewind. Expand it to see all the previous versions of that list. Open the correct version and click “Rewind”.

2. Rewind your entire account at once: Maybe you imported a large dataset or an employee made numerous changes to the account without consulting you. Whatever the reason, sometimes it’s best to Rewind the entire account tor items in bulk.
