"how do I restore a deleted Vimeo video? The other day I uploaded a video, however, it disappeared, likely to be deleted by Vimeo. Is there a problem with my network or anything?"

Generally speaking, there are two possibilities, you delete your Vimeo videos and Vimeo delete videos. For the first situation, you might do it purposely or accidentally. For another, people might feel confused for the reason why Vimeo does it. Vimeo definitely makes your videos inaccessible by moving them to Vimeo Archive for up to 1 year, like being deleted by Vimeo. Why does Vimeo do it? It all belongs to the Vimeo membership. As an ordinary membership, you can only upload up to 5GB videos in total and 500MB per week. If you want to upload more videos to Vimeo, you have to upgrade to a higher membership. If not, Vimeo will move the videos that excel the maximum file size to Archive and delete them later after 1 year.

Is there a way to Vimeo recover deleted video?

The answer is very clear. Once your videos excel the file size limitation, your videos will be deleted by Vimeo and there is no way to get them back at all. And if you manually deleted the videos on Vimeo, there is still no way to restore deleted videos on Vimeo as well. The useful suggestions I can give are: first, before uploading videos, make sure you have enough space on Vimeo. If not, you need to upgrade your membership or delete unwanted videos. Second, think twice before the leap. Before you delete videos on Vimeo, make sure you really need to do it and you have a backup on your computer or external hard drive.
