Recovering Deleted Items From the Dumpster
The dumpster feature allows users to recover items deleted from their account. When the dumpster feature is enabled by Class of Service or for individual accounts, a dumpster folder is created for each account and the Recover Deleted Items option is added to the Trash folder’s right-click menu.
Items put into dumpster no longer count against the account’s quota. Note that items in the dumpster use disk storage space outside of the account’s quota.
When users click Recover Deleted Items, users can search for the items to recover. When users recover an item from the dumpster, the item is copied to the account’s folder. The item still remains in the dumpster.
