Hi Joahan,
You can re-enable it from the drop menu, instead of choosing "all but deleted" choose "all".
The one with red cross is deleted, click it and choose enable.

Hi Johan L,

 

Yes you can perform operations like Enabling Deleted Ad Groups ( or renaming them) as they are only "containers" for elements like keywords and Ads.

The problem is that if inside them you have deleted Ads or Keywords (not enabled ones or paused) , these deleted elements cannot be re-enabled. About Ads it is explained here, that re-enabling is not possible :

Keep in mind

Once your ad is deleted, you won't be able to recover it. However, you can still review the performance of your deleted ad by selecting All ads from the All but deleted ads drop-down menu that's above your graph."

We hired someone to 'manage' our Adwords campaign while i was in hospital + 3 mnths thereafter while i was recouperating.

He could'nt perform / generate even half of the volume of leads that i normally generated, and we asked him to 'sign off'

He has deleted my ad groups (and set up same according to his beliefs)

I would dearly love to re-instate the deleted ad groups .... is it possible?

This is not possible in the AdWords account anymore. Once removed, we will not be able reinstate the campaign.
