Unable to delete End User Files from a single site collection RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have found a situation where I cannot purge a site collection's recycle bin.  I have a site where users can delete files.  The files are deleted and go to the "End User Recycle Bin".  As a Farm Admin, if I go to the recycle bin and click "Empty" or "Delete Selected" the files do not move from the End User to the 2nd Stage. 

    Yes...  I have checked and verified the Web Application General Settings for the Second Stage Recycle Bin.

    But no matter what I do, I cannot get these files out of the end user recycle bin and the bin fills and fills with files.

    The only way I was able to empty this bin was to shut off the recycle bin completely.

    Any ideas on this one?

  • Hello,

    Try this for testing_. Increase storage space for your site collection by almost 2-3 times than the currently used space.

    Then again try to empty the recycle bin.

  • Are using quotas for that site collection? If yes remove the quota and try to delete the items.
