Disabling permanent deletion of Sharepoint Content

  Asked By: Kimberlee    Date: Apr 29    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 903

Is there a way to disable the permanent deletion of Sharepoint content? I know the two-layer SP recycle bin infrastructure, but as per legal requirements of our firm, we need to be able to take the deleted content out of the recycle bin and place it into a separate content DB so that they could be retrieved at a later point if needed.

An example would be a blog posting - let's say someone posts a comment on a SP blog, which is deleted by the blog owner, and then is deleted permanently by the site admin. We want to be able to store/archive that deleted comment and be able to restore it if needed.

Any ideas on if that's feasible or even programmatically possible?

Have you looked at using the SharePoint Records Repository? You can create a Records Repository site, and create a custom workflow that routes items over there based on their content  type and other criteria.

You can also set up an Information Policy on your list, which sets an item to expire after a certain length of time. When this length of time happens, you can set a particular workflow to kick in, which would then route the item to your archive site. See Introduction to Information Policy.
