rpk cluster storage recovery

Interact with the topic recovery process. This command is used to restore topics from the archival bucket, which can be useful for disaster recovery or if a topic was accidentally deleted.

To begin the recovery process, use the recovery start command. Note that this process can take a while to complete, so the command will exit after starting it. If you want the command to wait for the process to finish, use the --wait or -w flag.

You can check the status of the recovery process with the recovery status command after it has been started.
