Deleted site collections reappeared again after SharePoint 2013 cumulative update.

Hi All,
On SharePoint 2013 farm, we have deleted approx. 1000 site collections previously and when we installed Jan 2021 CU on SharePoint 2013 farm approx. 300 site collections again reappeared in farm and those sites accessible properly.
We have deleted again them but that is very strange why and how they reappeared again in farm after CU activity.
We used to do CU activity every 3 months but first time we faced this issue.
Any one have faced this type of issue or suggestions please.

Hi @PrakashSingh-9326 ,

In my environment, I cannot reproduce your problem.Generally speaking, there will be no similar situation

Please the following troubleshooting:

1.Are there users have permissions to performs Restore site collection?

2.Whether site collections are backed up?

3.Does the Content database backup?

Thanks,
Echo Du

Hi EchoDu-MSFT,

Thanks for reply, but user can not restore because they do not have rights on servers.

We only used to take DB backup not site backup and again no manual restoration done at any level after CU.

Thanks for your reply.

This problem is really weird. It is hard to troubleshot this issue via community, we suggest you open a ticket from Microsoft for further help.
