Recovering Deleted Indexes

Eric Cobb has an enhancement to the SQL Server Metrics Pack:

I recently had a case at work where a database was restored, and several important indexes were accidentally removed. But because we are using SQL Server Metrics Pack to track the indexes on that server, we were easily able to recover all of the deleted indexes.

In order to spotlight the feature a little, I wanted to answer a few questions and provide some queries to help explain how to use this new feature.
