SharePoint 2010 Recycle Bin Settings

Recycle Bin Settings in SharePoint 2010

Recycle Bins are one of the key features which are mandotory from business requirements.They are used to protect and recover data.Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010 as well as SharePoint Server 2010 supports two stages of Recycle Bins:First-stage Recycle Bin and Second-stage Recycle Bin.
To configure Recycle Bin settings by using Central Administration

1. Verify that the user account that is performing this procedure is a member of the Farm Administrators SharePoint group.
2. On the SharePoint Central Administration Web site, click Application Management.
3. On the Application Management page, click Manage Web Applications.
4. Click the Web application for which you want to configure Recycle Bin settings. The ribbon becomes active.
5. On the ribbon, click the General Settings drop-down menu, and then click General Settings.
6. On the Web Application General Settings page, in the Recycle Bin section, you can configure the following settings:
->You can specify a time after which items in the Recycle Bins are deleted, or you can specify that these items should never be deleted. By default, items are deleted after 30 days.
->You can set the Recycle Bins for the Web application to be On or Off. By default, Recycle Bins are turned on.

If you turn off the Recycle Bins, any existing items in both the first and second-stage Recycle Bins are deleted. Depending on how much data is contained in the Recycle Bins, deleting these items can take a long time.

Please let me know in case of any issues,Thanks !!
