I get an error while trying to empty the recycle bin? This is the error message:

"Value does not fall within the expected range"


My assumption is your recycle bin contains more than 200 items, so please select less that 200 items and delete it.

I think SharePoint will not allow to delete more that 200 items at a time.

  • Hi my recycle bin contains indeed more than 200 items. But even selecting one item of the 200 i get an error message. – Peter Kiers Sep 26 '18 at 8:20
