Recover deleted site collection using powershell

  • Unfortunately, there is no user interface for restoring deleted site collections. Managing deleted site collections requires using PowerShell. SharePoint 2010 Service Pack 1 introduces 3 new PowerShell CmdLets for managing the Recycle Bin for site collections.

    • Get-SPDeletedSite
    • Restore-SPDeletedSite
    • Remove-SPDeletedSite

    The easiest way to get a list of all the deleted site collections is to just call Get-SPDeleteSite without any parameters. In the following example, for brevity, I have formatted the output as a table and filtered the columns displayed. In the second sample, I have added a wildcard filter to the command that can be used to easily filter sites based on relative paths.

    1178_5Once you have identified the site you want to restore, you call the Restore-SPDeletedSite. To restore one or more sites, it is easiest to just pipe the results from Get-SPDeletedSite. By default, the command will ask you to confirm the restore. To eliminate the confirmation, just add “Confirm:$true” to the end of the command.
