SharePoint cannot find only deleted items

Post by dali@iae.nl »

When I explore last state of a SharePoint backup I see less than I do the same but select also to view the deleted items by the user.
For example if I just view the latest state I see 1 document under Documents, if I also select to show the deleted items by the user I see 2 documents.

Problem is that I cannot see in that last view which document was deleted. Als via Advanced Find with "Deleted" is exactly Yes does show nothing. "Deleted" is exactly No shows both documents.
What goed wrong?

Hi Dali

You are saying, you want to see which of the items shown are already deleted in your SharePoint site.
I'm afraid that is currently not possible. Maybe you can save both documents to your local disk and do a manual comparison.

OK, user says they miss a lot of libraries and documents of the site. So I have to compare for each Library, that's a pitty.
Feature request to show a difference between backup and live should be great.

Have you considered restoring the entire site/library with this option? This will allow you to recover items that have been deleted in your production environment.

I did not try, but that's exact what I would see before the restore action: a list with the Missing items.
