Enabling and using Deleted Item Recovery features

Quest recommends that you enable the Deleted Item Recovery functionality in Exchange to reduce the requirement to perform recovery for individual messages or mailboxes. This feature enables the recovery of recently deleted items by saving messages for a predetermined number of days.

Enabling Deleted Item Recovery in Exchange

Open the Exchange Management Shell.
Set‑Mailbox ‑Identity <MailboxServer> ‑SingleItemRecoveryEnabled
For <MailboxServer>, you can use the ADObjectID, alias, distinguished name (DN), domain\account, GUID, LegacyExchangeDN, SMTPAddress, or user principal name (UPN). For the length of time, dd = days, hh = hours, mm = minutes, and ss = seconds.
Set-Mailbox ‑Identity <MailboxServer> ‑RecoverableItemsQuota <Limit>
For <Limit>, enter the maximum amount of space, for example, 15 GB, that can be used before more items cannot be stored in the Recovery Items Folder.
Set-MailboxDatabase ‑Identity <MailboxServer> ‑RecoverableItemsQuota <Limit>
