Deletion of SharePoint List bypassing SharePoint Recycle Bin

Jul 8, 2009 at 9:38 AM


First of all, many thanks to Kevin for developing and sharing such wonderful adapters.

I am using a Sharepoint List Source adapter and a Sharepoint List Destination adapter to delete around 2400 rows from a Sharepoint list before loading new data from SQL Server. The deleted rows end up in the Recycle bin. If the recycle bin gets full, the deletion is failing. I'd like to know if there is any option in the existing adapters which will let the deleted rows bypass the recycle bin.

Thanks in advance.

Hm, I have not heard of this before. I cannot control the delete operation, sorry.  I'd contact your administrator to increase the size of the recycle bin - or perhaps look at 'updating' the rows instead of deleting / readding them (if that is what you're doing).  It will make it much faster, if that applies for what you're doing, as well.
