Recycle Bin would not empty

  Asked By: Heena    Date: Sep 05    Category: MOSS    Views: 1390

We ran into this issue this week. On MOSS 2007, we had a Site Collection that
had used all of its space. In an attempt to free up space, we wanted to empty
the Site Collection recycle bin. Only, it wouldn't empty. It would act like it
was going to, and then not actually delete anything. We eventually expanded the
site quota and the Recycle Bin emptied first try after that.

Does anyone have any insight as to how much space you need to have available to
empty the recycle bin, or did we run into an oddity?
