Provide a rollback or revision control capability for the wiki. We just had an accidental deletion of an entire section and there's no backup? "Undo" did not.
This request is still queued up in the backlog. No new details are available at this time.
@warren: any news about this topic? Sharepoint .mht file of related wiki page supports versioning but changes are not propagated to Teams. A user just accidentally deleted 80% of content of my wiki page and I have no way of restoring the original content.
It is unimaginable for me that in 2021 a corporate tool does not support file recovery. Especially when I am looking at all the previous versions of the file not having any means to restore them.

You should definitely try 3rd party wiki solutions. For example, Perfect Wiki is MS Teams first class citizen and it have a proper 'recycle bin'. So you can restore any page.
Still reading horror stories of deleted wiki's all over the web. This really needs to be addressed right away.
This helped me but MS needs to make this easier.
What an awful collaboration tool with no means to restore a trashed Wiki site. I hope MS takes its customers seriously because I can launch a ton of opensource resources that don't cost any more than disk space to support and get backups and versioning where Teams can't even handle that.
MS get with the program !
This has GOT to be a high priority. When a Wiki tab is deleted from Teams and goes directly to FOREVER DELETED is unacceptable.
Found a option by locating .mhtml file with versioning feature and able to restore old content
is there any work around for wiki restore or recover for old content?
SHAUN DAVEY commented
A lot of potential for this product, please add a version history function!
2 years later and still nothing, the mht files in sharepoint even have version tracking, but restoring them does nothing....
It is concerning these basic features of a wiki are missing and remain missing 3 years after the original request.
why it is not possible to recover from Teams open in sharepoint wiki library i have tried and that is not successful
whether do we have any workaround for this.
Sylvia Tiong commented
Please hurry up in getting in the feature to rollback and have revision control for the wiki. This is a vital feature for information management.
@warren, @MS please at least provide a workable workaround for it.

We are adopting teams and were going to use the wiki for our branch knowledge base. However, the risk is too great with no recovery so we are now looking for alternative solutions. Recovery for an open system is critical if its to be useful for an organisation.

Using this https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams/Restore-a-deleted-wiki-in-Microsoft-Teams/m-p/195792 you can find the wiki hidden list in SharePoint on this you can turn versioning on so that you have versions to roll back to in future.
Have just done this because we lost the content of one of the sections.

I lost our wiki content in a section. I cannot retrieve them. A lot of section contents went all missing.
Greg L. commented
Yes --- having lost wiki data also. Working with support to find it. Discussing moving to another product -- we have to have backup copies
Wiki in Teams = great idea!
No 'undo' = not even worth using.
Please integrate more options in wiki. Rollback, Recovery, Export in PDF/Word

Yes, if you delete the page on accident there is no way to retrieve it. I am still working with our KP IT and sounds like we need to get it from offshore account.
