Error restoring a List from Recycle Bin RRS feed

  • Question

  • When attempting to restore a list from the Recycle Bin I get the error that a list with that name already exists.  Looking a the content of Lists in both the browser and SP Designer show no list by that name.  Can it be hidden?

  • HI,

    Open your site in Sharepoint designer. Even if the list is hidden it will be enlisted over here and you will be able to do the needful.

    In other ways type /Lists/YourListName directly in URL of yor site to take you to the list.

    I hope this will help you out.


    Thanks, Rahul Rashu
