Can I disable recycle bin on a specific list? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I wonder if it is possible to disable recycle bin on a specific list.

    I know I can change recycle bin settings at the site collection level. I need to disable it a list level, so if any item is deleted it completely wipes out.

    Thank you

  • Hi Allan,

    Not possible out of the box to disable it at that level I'm afraid.  With some custom work, you can probably create a workflow or timerjob to periodically empty the contents of the recycle bin seperately.

  • Hi,

    No you can not do that.

    Its being configured at web application level in central admin level.

    However for your scenario I would suggest you to create a scheduled job that will remove the items of this list from recycle bin.

    I hope this will help you out.
