How to recover and restore deleted items in SharePoint

If you have deleted an item in SharePoint by mistake the default setting by YourOfficeAnyWhere is to keep deleted items for 1 month.

To resolve this go to your SharePoint site that YourOfficeAnyWhere host for you in the menu pain on the left hand side at the very bottom is Recycle Bin – please select this.
You will see a list of deleted items that are available for restore.

If you are logged in as an administrator of the site you can view all site content that has been deleted and restore this on a users’ behalf. To do this log on as the administrator and select “manage deleted items for the entire Site Collection” to go to the Site Collection Recycle Bin. This isn’t obvious but is above the bar with the “restore selection” (usually in blue) and is described in the text immediately above this.
