a pompous manager e-mailed all the staff in his department trying to find out who had deleted an important
document. The funny thing was, after he realized it was him, he tried to cover his tracks by deleting it from the Recycle
Bin. When I restored it from the second stage (Site Collection) Recycle Bin, I made sure some of his staff knew what
he'd done because I knew he wasn't going to tell them!
Accessing the Second-Stage Recycle Bin
Because the second-stage Recycle Bin can use a large portion of your site quota (the default is 50%; see Figure 8-2 ) you
should know how and where to manage it. This is not something you can rely on your site collection administrators
to know about unless they have had thorough training. Its size would have been planned and decided on doing the
configuration of your farm. From a farm capacity management perspective, you can keep the site Recycle Bin only and
turn off the second-stage Recycle Bin if you wish. You may do this to allow users to maintain their site quota without
needing site collection administrator rights. If they empty their site Recycle Bins, they can reclaim space from their
quota immediately without needing the content to then be deleted from the site collection Recycle Bin. As a high-level
farm owner, you may not be aware of how to access the site collection Recycle Bin, so here are the steps:
First go to Site Settings logged in as a site collection administrator or higher (see Figure 8-3 ).
Figure 8-3. Site collection settings are accessed via Site Settings
Then click the Recycle Bin link under Site Collection Administration (Figure 8-4 ). This
section will not be there if you are not logged in with site collection administrator rights,
even though you can access the page with site administrator rights.
