(Edited to be a generic question; see old version if you're curious about specifics)

I googled a question (Q) I had and the only hit was to a deleted (but cached) Q here and it (the Google-cached copy) looks like a legit Q to me.

Should the Q I found be undeleted? If not I can just post a new Q.

The question was deleted by the roomba a month ago.

That doesn't mean it was "bad", it was simply ignored and had neither votes nor answers.

If the question is more than 365 days old, and ...

  • has a score of 0 or less, or a score of 1 and a deleted owner
  • has no answers
  • is not locked
  • has view count <= the age of the question in days times 1.5
  • has 1 or 0 comments
  • isn't on a meta site

... it will be automatically deleted. These are termed "abandoned" questions (RemoveAbandonedQuestions).

Rather than undeleting a question that OP has likely given up on it would be better for you to post a new question, though the online sharing features of Google Drive may well be off topic here and better off at Web Applications.

  • Hmmm.... What is roomba?
