Deleted Mailbox not appearing in Disconnected mailbox Exchange 2013

I deleted a mailbox a week ago but the Deleted Mailbox is not appearing in Disconnected mailbox Exchange 2013. I need to restore that mailbox. I read about clean-Mailboxdatabase command. Would that work ? Do I need to move all existing mailboxes in that database to another database before running the command ?

If it is 2013 try to update the store where user mailbox was:

Get-MailboxStatistics -Database MDB03 | Where { $_.DisconnectReason -ne $null } | ForEach { Update-StoreMailboxState -Database $_.Database -Identity $_.MailboxGuid -Confirm:$false }

No need to move mailboxes anywhere also clean-mailnoxdatabase will not work with 2013

@Vidit Bhardwaj is correct. The clean-mailboxdatabase cmdlet is no longer available in exchange 2013. that cmdlet would have worked but it's removed, so the option present by @Vidit Bhardwaj is the way to resolve this issue. i don't know why MS would remove the clean-mailboxdatabase but they did. it make no sense to me.

Run this and let us know if you see the mailbox you wanted to recover.

Get-MailboxDatabase | Get-MailboxStatistics | Where { $_.DisconnectReason -eq "Disabled" } | ft DisplayName,Database,DisconnectDate

If a mailbox is disabled or disconnected it will be retained for 30 days by default.  However, if you used Remove-Mailbox cmdlet with Permanent or StoreMailboxIdentity parameter then it's deleted from the mailbox database.  How did you delete the mailbox?
