what is the trick for finding specific files in SPO recycle bin? we can only sort by title and date deleted, there is no filtering and when there are thousands of files, it is an endless scroll which is unusable.

I've found this UNTESTED and (relativelly) old powershell script search option, that we'll explore in our team. http://www.sharepointdiary.com/2016/07/sharepoint-online-search-recycle-bin-using-powershell.html
As recycleBin is now the only Back Up management mechanism in SPO, it is almost indispensable to make it more efficient. At the moment it works that's it. Good search / filtering mechanism would make it great.
We had an incident where a user misunderstanding onedrive synchronisation just deleted ~7000 files from his synced folders (Sharepoint). Was hell to find all these mistakenly deleted files (as other files were also rightfully deletes in the middle).

@Dean Gross You can use PowerShell to export the recycle bin items to a csv file and use excel to filter on dates, users, etc.
All you need to do is install the SharePoint PNP Powershell module and run the following:
Connect-PnPOnline -Url https://<sitecollectionurl/
Get-PnPRecycleBinItem -firstStage | export-csv <filepath>

and you also also filter by directory name :
$_.DirNAme -match "sites/…."

@Eric LE CORRE thanks for the additional suggestion, but this won't help the site owner who is trying to find a file that was deleted. Site owners are empowered to do almost everything, they should not have to open a support ticket with their Help Desk to do something this simple

I'm not sure how it is in other companies but many people in our one are not super tech-savvy and your solution in practise, even if simple for you, might be overly complicated. How about just making general search feature working?
