Windows Server 2008 R2 brought a number of nice changes to Active Directory, but the number one crowd pleaser had to be the AD Recycle Bin, a useful tool for undeleting Active Directory objects who've been deleted, so to speak, "before their time." Powerful and useful as the Recycle Bin is, however, there's more to it than a bit of clicking and dragging, as there's no Recycle Bin GUI built into R2 --the only in-the-box way to make use of the Recycle Bin is a set of PowerShell commands. (There ARE third-party GUIs for the Recycle Bin, though, as you'll learn in this talk.) How long can something stay "dead" before it can't be revived? Must we reboot our domain controllers to un-delete things? Is there a way in an R2 domain to delete something and ensure that it CAN'T be revived? Find out in this fast-paced, comprehensive look at the AD's new Recycle Bin, presented by Mark Minasi, author of some of the best-selling books on Active Directory around!
