Hi @Anonymous ,

  1. For restoring workspace, if you have access to Admin Porttal in power bi service, you will see the workspaces status in Workspaces. If not, please contact your administartor to operate. There are divided into two types:
    • If you delete a new/application workspace, you will see the status as 'Deleted', just click the (...) to restore, make sure there is at least one admin in workspacerestore workspace.png
    • If you delete a classic workspace, you can see the same status as new workspace but it is more complicated than new workspace to restore because when you delete the classic workspcae, the related Office 365 group will also be deleted, you need to restore the Ofiice 365 group in Azure Portal first then wait for moment in power bi service to see the restored classic workspace.restore classic.png
  2. For restoring a report, I'm afraid could not do it directly. You had better back up the same copy in advance on-premiss.
  3. For restoring a dashboard, you can re-pin a tile in report to dashboard not restore it directly.
  4. For restoring a dataset, you can re-connect to it or repulish a report to power bi service and it will generate dataset automatically, it also could not restore it directly.

Open Power BI Desktop instead of double-clicking the the corrupted pbix file's location.
Click File -> Open -> Select the corrupted pbix file.
You will see a yellow ribbon saying “open in autorecovery mode..” Click on it and the file will open with the version before it got corrupted.
