I am a bit confused with regards to the Recycle Bin when it comes to SharePoint 2013.
A few quick Google searches suggested that when one deletes a sub-site, the site will not be permanently deleted but it will go to the Site Recycle bin and then to the Site Collection Administration Recycle Bin.
However, whenever I try to create a sub-site and delete it, both the recycle bins are empty and the sub sites cannot be restored.
These are the steps I followed:
Create a Sub-Site
Delete a sub-site
Site Recycle Bin Contents
Site Content Administration Recycle Bin
So do sub-sites get deleted permanently?
I read somewhere that you need about 50%(?) of storage quota for the items to be store in the recycle bin, however storage is not an issue as we did not surpass 50% of the allocated amount.
