Site Permission Recyble Bin Sharepoint Online (365)

Gonzalo H. Musicó 6 Reputation points


At the moment i have a Sharepoint created from a Teams group. All the users has access to restore files from the Recycle bin, the owners and the members (visitors are not used in this Site).

My problem is i cannot find a set of a permission (or a workaround) so ONLY owners could restore deleted files, i want to avoid that usual members restore files.

Any thoughts?

    Hi @Gonzalo H. Musicó

    There is no way to set the permission on the Recycle bin rather it is control by the documents / items permission. Typically user with contribute access on Document library / list can access deleted stuff from Recycle-Bin. On Side note, Site collection owner/admin can access the recycle bin of the site collection.

    If you want to restrict that ability then you have to lower the permissions of that user on the Document library ( less than edit permission).
