Using Powershell, I have found it possible to audit and restore the recycle bin using:
Restore-PnpRecycleBinItem. What I cannot find though is how I would go about sending the recovered file to a designated location rather than the original. This particular mass-delete is requiring global action and I'd like to restore everything very carefully into a new sharepoint site and then sort it out from there with the user.
Is it possible to retrieve items from the recycle bin and restore to a target location? I'm willing to script this out - I thought about simply copying it from here and then deleting it to stage2 recycle bin to keep myself organized - that's not bad but I'm not sure how I would engage in a copy from this location.
My only other thought was to restore it, building a list all the while, and then to go through and move it to another location and delete the folder if/when required. Much more complex and way more noise for the sync client of all the users during this ~300k item process...
Thank you for any suggestions
