Filter on Recycle bin Search

Occasional Contributor



Is there some sort of filter or search in the recycle bin to find a spesific deleted document, user deleted a document but can't remember the date and time, only parts of the name but browsed through the recycle bin but no luck.

Unfortunately no...the only way to do something like waht you need is by means of a custom PowerShell Script / Code
