@TrifaAlina Could you please give more information about your environment/sandbox? What are the resources that were deleted?

Assuming the question is about the Microsoft Learn Sandbox environment, I'm afraid there isn't a reset option for the sandbox as such.

The sandbox environment created for a module is available for four consecutive hours. So, you may go back to the beginning of the module to start over.

Here are some FAQs about MS Learn Sandbox.

This didn't work for me. I tried going back to page 1 of the module, and navigating forward to sandbox initiating page, but it's stuck on the existing non-working sandbox. Also incognito, another computer, neither worked (perhaps as expected as it's account-linked, not browser).

In my situation, when creating the resource group, it was missing resources (maybe they were taking long and stuck in queue, I'll never know...). Is the only option to wait it out? It'd be useful to be able to "reset" or have the ability to use up another sandbox (up to the quota) in cases where I need to restart.

@MichelleWong-1452 Yes, sandboxes are temporary and your sandbox access is associated via your Microsoft account.

The sandbox environment created for a module is available for four consecutive hours usually to ensure that you can finish the module. Each module gives you a new sandbox so you're always starting in a clean environment. The system detects when you move from one module to the next, and it prompts you to activate a new sandbox.

So, I believe waiting for it to time out is the only option available today, but your feedback is very valid. Please submit your suggestions here to help us improve your experience.
