I am using Sharepoint Foundation 2010 and its been great for a number of years.

However i have a list that is in the recycle bin 10424.4 MB in size so its a pretty large list.

Im trying to recover it but when i tick it and click restore selection it seems to act like its restoring but say 20-30 seconds later the page just seems to crash and i just get a blank white page. Then when i go back to the recycle bin the List is still there and hasnt been restored. Ive tried this many time, restarting everything and so on but nothing has changed.

I have other lists and created a single item in those lists, deleted, restored and those havent been a problem (so i assume its something due to the actual size of the list maybe? maybe its timing out when its attempting to restore?)

Any ideas as to what i could do to restore it as im totally lost right now. Youd be saving my life literally, thank you all

I got this from the Log. Not so sure what it means though
