    Search and Restore file from SharePoint Online using PowerShell


    When having SharePoint Online, one can easily recover items from the Recycle Bin, but unfortunately, there is no search facility for the Recycle Bin from the web interface. We can use PowerShell to easily search for the item.

    To be able to connect, we need to install the new module, Open a PowerShell window and use the below to install the module.

    Install-Module -Name PnP.PowerShell

    If you would have an older version already installed, you need to use the below command to remove the old module, and then install the module as above.

    Uninstall-Module -Name SharePointPnPPowerShellOnline -AllVersions -Force

    To connect with the SharePoint Online site, we need to use the following command which will ask us to allow the script to communicate along with the Multi-Function Authentication (MFA).

    Connect-PnPOnline -Url "Enter the SharePoint URL here" -Interactive

    To extract the specified SharePoint Online Recycle Bin, you need to use the following command to output to the screen. Change the RowLimit to set the maximum results.

    Get-PnPRecycleBinItem -RowLimit 50 | Select Title, ItemType, Size, ItemState, DirName, DeletedByName, DeletedDate | Format-table -AutoSize

    To export the results to a CSV, you need to add the Export-CSV at the end as below

    Get-PnPRecycleBinItem -RowLimit 50 | Select Title, ItemType, Size, ItemState, DirName, DeletedByName, DeletedDate | Export-Csv "C:\Temp\RecycleBin.csv" -NoTypeInformation

    To restore a specific file, you cannot just specify the name, as you need to get the item information. We need to use the following commands

    $itemtorestore=Get-PnPRecycleBinItem | ? -Property Title -EQ "filename of the deleted file"
    Restore-PnpRecycleBinItem -Identity $itemtorestore -Force

    This will restore the file to its original location.

    Quick Access not searching Pictures folder

    Summary, that last suggestion didn't work.

    • I moved the pictures to another folder temporarily.


    • Since there were no troubleshooting steps for this scenario, just for the heck of it, I ran through the restore steps. Copied some pictures into the Pictures folder, ran a Quick Access search and initial problem remains: Searching all of QA doesn't find any files in Pictures folder, running search on just the Pictures folder does. I want to run a global search and find matching files in any/all of the Documents, Music, Videos, and Pictures folders.
    That article dates from 2015 and I'm guessing is out of date. I hope it didn't create potential future problems in my registry.

    Bottom line: I'm still looking for a fix.

  3. Sharepoint sync - massive delay - Windows events log file

    Hi All,

    How do I view the events log?

    The M365 team are suggesting taking a manual backup of Sharepoint, then reestablishing a Sharepoint sync "from scratch". Please forgive any knowledge gaps.

    They've advised this has a possibility of losing sharepoint data. We are therefore reluctant to perform this step if an event log can point to an alternative fix.
