Today we are going to describe about how to recover deleted objects from recycle bin on SharePoint on-premises a SharePoint Online as well.
There is no much difference between to recover data from SharePoint on-premises and SPO, both are similar with some of minor changes.
When we deleted a document, List or items from an app in SharePoint, it isn’t gone forever. The document or list just moves to a holding place in your site — the Recycle Bin. Which we can find out and restore in easy process.

Below are the steps to recover data from accidentally deleted on SharePoint?
  • We will set an example; assume we have some items on SP list or document and we have deleted now we want to recover the same.
  • To recover deleted item, we need to go to Site content page or Site setting page.
Find recycle bin from Site content page: Go to site>click on gear box on right side and select site contents and here we will find out Recycle bin on the Top of site page.
  • If you are administrator of site then to find Recycle bin from Site setting page> go to site setting from gear box>select Recycle Bin under Site collection Administration.

  • Now how to recover data from recycle bin. We can click the Delete Selection link in the Recycle Bin to remove the file from your Recycle Bin in SharePoint. Doing so, however, doesn’t permanently delete the file. Instead, the file is moved to another Recycle Bin that can be accessed by the site collection administrator.
  • On the top-level site, click the Site Actions menu Button image, click Site Settings, and then click Modify All Site Settings.
NOTE: On a site for which the Site Actions menu is customized, point to Site Settings, and then click the settings that you want to view.
  • On the Site Settings page, in the Site Collection Administration section, click Recycle bin.
  • On the Site Collection Recycle Bin page, in the Select a View section, do one of the following:
  • To view items that the user has sent to the Recycle Bin, click End user Recycle Bin items.
  • To view items that the user has deleted from the Recycle Bin and sent to the Site Collection Recycle Bin, click Deleted from end user Recycle Bin.
  • Select the check box next to the items that you want to restore. To select all of the items at once, select the check box next to Type.
  • Click Restore Selection.
  • If you restore an item that was originally located in a deleted folder, the folder is recreated in its original location, and then the item is restored in that folder.
