recover cleaned-up artifacts


We have a retention period of a month for build logs and build artifacts that we don't wish to keep forever. However, I've had a request to provide a log/artifact for a build from back in January this year. Is there any way to recover cleaned-up artifacts at all?
I am suspecting the answer is no, given I can find no clues anywhere to suggest it's possible.

Many thanks,

Hi Joe,

If you have a TeamCity backup for January with build logs, then you can recover build logs.
Artifacts are not included in the backup due to their size. Unfortunately it's not possible to recover artifacts using TeamCity. Artifacts should be backed up manually from <TeamCity Data Directory>/system/artifacts directory.
