Restore folder in Sharepoint

We heavily use a customised feature of Image Library on sharepoint 2007 which is our Intranet. One of the new users yesterday had deleted a whole folder from this library and wanted us to restore this. Now we have never done a restore onto the sharepoint.

So I started investigating the sharepoint settings as to how to solve this problem rather than looking at the backup to restore.


So this is what I found! a Recycle Bin in the Sharepoint. And there are the files from the folder that was deleted neatly sitting in there. Wow that's a learning for the day I thought.

So here is the path as to how I found the Recycle Bin.


  • Click on the Image Ibrary on the intranet

  • Click on site settings

  • Click on Recycle Bin which is under Site Collection Administration as shown below.
