Custom Device Collections are Empty

I created some device collections that mirrors our AD environment.  One of the collections I needed to delete and didn't realize that in order to delete it, it deleted the All Systems device group.  So now all of my device collections are empty.  When I look at the preferences it still sees all the systems from the direct rule, but there isn't anything that will refresh the collection to show the machines.  Any ideas??

Are you sure that you deleted the "All Systems" collection? It's a default one and cannot be deleted. "Delete" is greyed out by default.

I'm pretty sure.  I have another collection that I tried to fix since this happened and when I try to delete that one I get a delete collection error box that says to delete these collections the following reference must be deleted and points to the All Unknown Computers.  I'm pretty sure this happened with the other one and was pointing to All Computers, because it was blank until I ran discovery.

"All Computers" or "All Systems"? The second one is a default one. Any chance that your collection was limited by the custom "all Computers" collection?

Sorry, All Systems.  When I go into properties that's what it shows.  I've tried to change that and re-apply but that's not working either.

Yes, I know this is an old post, but Im trying to clean them up. Did you solve this problem, if so what was the solution?

Since no one has answer this post, I recommend opening  a support case with Microsoft Customer Support Services (CSS) as they can work with you to solve this problem.
