Backup recycle bin


Is it possible to backup the recycle bin from a group? We want to empty a group recycle bin, but the group wants to be sure for deleting all the items in this bin. Powershell?

I've created this script to create PST files of specific folders including archive. It might be useful for what you want.

Have a look:

If you have any doubt, please reach me.

Harry are you referring to groups in Outlook or SharePoint? What's the reason/use case to empty it please?

I think he is referring to the Recycle bin in the Group site...and in that case, this is not a feature provided Today, but it can be done using either a third party tool or some custom code to get the information from the recycle bin and make a backup

Correct, I want to copy the recycle bin from the group to a local file location, and then empty the bin...
