Please note: SoundCloud cannot restore tracks or playlists that were accidentally deleted

Hello everyone,

Unfortunately, we cannot restore any tracks that you might have deleted accidentally.

We're very sorry and hope you can soon re-upload your track and get right back to where you left.

All the best

Track name: LHK - Feedback

Broken link I sent to someone in the past, not sure if any help:
https://soundcloud.com/lhksounds/feedback/s-qKinW

A suggestion for a future feature is the ability to restore deleted tracks, it would solve all the posts on the form.

Thanks for your help,
Luke

Yeah, I'm not sure why the ability to restore deleted track (even at least *recently* deleted tracks) is not there. It's obviously not a technical reason since you've done it manually for people in the past, and it's obviously a big problem for many people since a) I've seen a lot of similar posts, and I think the interface is confusing - at least that's what caused me to accidentally delete my track (and I study computer science so I'd blame in on interface than skills) and b) you actually had to create a post describing the interface to address all these requests. Thanks!
Kyriakos, Exactly. The only reason I even thought it was a possibility was because the admins have helped restore other user's deleted tracks so why wouldn't they help me with mine? Instead they responded with a snarky remark " Don't delete the song in the first place". Pretty Rude if you ask me.

Yah, I get it, it's annoying to deal with users that make silly mistakes repeatedly (so I complete understand you Gina and Mathis), but unless there is indeed a complicated technical reason I can't think of, I think the right way to deal with it is to tackle it at its root and avoid all future occurrences which are bound to happen. (Don't get me wrong, I really appreciate the service and realize I'm not eligible to whining since it's also free, I'm more than happy with it and your help:) It just seems like a reasonable, doable solution) Thanks!

Hey guys, currently freaking out because I (accidentally) deleted a song and then uploaded the wrong version! The version I deleted is the only copy I have! The song is called 'Tiny Nova'. Is there any way to recover it at all?

I'll do anything, been working on it for ages!

So this is what happens then - in the time that it probably takes to give a reply, your problem is moved to a different area of the forum that tells you not to do the thing you've already done? Thanks a lot Souncloud! You create a site where people upload labours of love and then patronise the heck out of those users when they make a mistake. That's a good way to get people to go Pro!

Are we actually able to get help on this, or are we just relegated to a reject section of how not to use Soundcloud??

I reloaded my song so no drama, just annoying.

However, seeing this is happening often to users maybe it's not as simplistic and condescending as "don't throw your track in the trash can".

For me it's about wording and lack of functions for example, when I accidentally moved my song into a playlist there was no clear way for me to remove it. I assumed clicking the trashcan would remove it from 'that' particular playlist.
The reason it was there because I was seeing if by clicking the heart symbol i could find out who liked my song (obviously you can't) but I didn't expect it would allow me to 'like' my own song.

Cheers.
