Description Report has been deleted. How to create a new report with the same name?

Steps to create the report with the same name:

      1) Undelete report from recycle bin. 

     2) Change the name of undeleted report to other name. 

     3) Create the new report with the Preferred Name.

NOTE: When a report is deleted, it goes into the Recycle Bin. Even if we delete it from the Recycle Bin, it needs to be deleted from Salesforce Backup Servers

·          The Report might still exist in the SalesForce database which can cause the above error. 

·          Every weekend SFDC performs Cleansing activities for their data. Once it happens, you can create a new Report with the same name that you are looking for.
