# What's going to happen with my questions when they're deleted?

I've read that some questions are deleted after some time due to low number of upvotes. If this happens, will it be possible to retrieve them some way?

I guess some of my questions may not have a big number of upvotes, but it will be helpy to keep them for my lifetime.

If the question is more than 30 days old, and ...

• has −1 or lower score
• is not locked

... it will be automatically deleted.

If the question is more than 365 days old, and ...

• has a score of 0 or a score of 1 with a deleted owner
