Searching the Recycle Bin? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've been asked to find some folders and documents deleted at some time over the last month, when up to 1000 documents are deleted daily. Is there a way to search the Site Collection Recycle Bin?

    Thanks,

    Scott

  • Hi Scott,

    We can get the deleted document within a time period with following PowerShell command.

    (Get-SPSite "http://server:port").RecycleBin | ?{($_.DeletedDate -gt "6/1/2013") -and ($_.DeletedDate -lt "7/1/2013")}

    Thanks & Regards,
