Searching in SharePoint Recycle Bin

SharePoint’s trash mechanism is a commonly known concept. However, sometimes there are too many items in the trash can. Since you cannot filter it, it is very difficult to see if the item you are looking for is in the trash can.

In this case, you can tell if the item you are looking for has been deleted with a PowerShell script as follows.

(Get-SPSite "http://yoursiteurl/").RecycleBin | ?{$_.Title -match "Sample Item Title"}
