Exporting data to bring a user back

I was wondering if it is possible to export a users data if they want to be deleted and then if needed or they change there mind use the data you exported to bring there account back


If they ask to be deleted them keeping their data is a violation of what they are asking for. But they can export their own data. I’m not sure what’s in that dump and whether it contains the original post ids.


That’s an interesting question.

Here’s what contains a data request:


The posts are contained in user_archive.csv:

I guess restoring a deleted user using a custom script would be possible, but there would be missing or broken data, especially regarding interactions.

Basically, it wouldn’t be a good idea.


Okay thank you for telling me this
