Couldn’t restore site. We couldn’t find the Office 365 group connected to this site.

Issue:

we tried to restore SPO Site, It failed with Error ” Couldn’t restore site . We couldn’t find the Office 365 group connected to this site.”

Solution:

It could be because the Owner/Group assigned SPO Site may not be available or deleted from the tenant. Hence that when we are restoring using GUI the It is trying to find the owner of the site and failing to complete the action.

To restore the site where Owner is no more exist, We need to use Powershell to restore the site instead of GUI Method.

1. Open Powershell
2. Run command Connect-SPOnline
3. Run command Restore-SPODeletedSite
