What if I accidentally delete a file?

Natasha E Madorsky -

If an item is deleted accidentally, you will likely be able to find it in the Recycle Bin. Deleted items are maintained in your site's recycle bin for 30 days. To locate a deleted file in the Recycle Bin, follow the instructions below:


Recovering a Deleted File

Step 1

To reach the recycle bin, click on the gear icon in the top right corner of any PEPFAR SharePoint page. Within the drop-down menu, select "Site Contents."

From an OU page, you can also click "Site Contents" at the bottom of the left navigation bar:


Step 2

On the right side of the page, click "Recycle Bin"


Step 3

You will see all recently deleted items for which you had adequate permissions to view. Check the box to the left of the document you wish to restore or permanently delete, and select one of the buttons above.

If you do not see the item in the Recycle Bin, please contact the Help Desk by submitting a ticket on the Support Site.
