Soft delete and Hard delete in Salesforce


Warehouse App

Soft delete:
  • When you delete records, they are moved to Recyle Bin and these records are said to be soft deleted.
  • If an object and it’s data are soft deleted, they can be restored.
  • Soft-deleted custom objects and their data count against your organization’s limits; hard-deleted items do not.
Hard delete:
  • When you delete records permanently, they are said to be hard deleted.
  • If an object and it’s data are hard deleted, they are permanently erased.
  • Hard-deleted custom objects and their data don’t count against your organization’s limits.

Recycle Bin lets you view and restore recently deleted records for 15 days before they are permanently deleted.
