Recycle bin management
-Run reports on the recycle bin content
-Be able to restore the content
-Be able to delete the content
We have no plan of supporting the recycle bin in ShareGate Desktop.

Please reconsider the possibility of adding Recycle Bin Management in ShareGate Desktop. Currently i'm restoring 15K by hand... It would have been great if you rewrite some ShareGate Migration code and make it possible to selectively choose which files to copy/restore from the Recycle Bin to any other Library.
With kind regards,

Microsoft has added Recovery your OneDrive to OneDrive for Business. For an instance when corporate requirements are to archive and document all data for nxx period of time including anything deleted within nnx period of time, this is an option.
It may not answer the restore all deleted documents problem the way a "restore all" would but it is a potential work around for now.
I'm in a similar situation as Bruce. We have 45,000 items erroneously deleted, and now I need to "selectively" restore them.
I just had a user delete over 75,000 items and folders from their document libraries, and now I have to restore them 50 at a time. I would definitely appreciate a Recycle Bin management tool in Share-Gate. This is the second time this particular user has done this, and probably won't be the last.
Please add this functionality. With users using files on demand they can delete entire departmental libraries easily. Restoring 100,000 files from a browser is impossible. Calling MS to do it is painful.
I just want to see how much space the recycle bin is taking up

Would be very, very helpful to be able to export the contents of the recycle bin to Excel, select/filter the files to be restored and the import the Excel into Sharegate and have those files restored. This way you overcome the issue with the 50 items and you can make much smarter selections.
I have thousands of items in subsite recycle bins and deleting them from the recylc bin 50 at a time is counter productive. Can Sharegate please allow a view of the recycle bin that allows more than 50 items to be selected and restored or permantently deleted?
I am very much interested to generate a recycle bin report where all items/documents deleted from Sharepoint.
Please let me know your suggestions or any workarounds if you have.
thanks in advance
Feedback sent from the New Report view.
Not only reporting but also restoring option please.
Is there an option to view recycle bin content on both stages?
There must be so many people using SP2013 workflows that have burgeoning history lists that need to be purged. Let Sharegate be the one to provide the solution.

Currently, you can only delete the items from the migration screen. I'd like to be able to delete the items and have them being deleted from the recycle bin at the same time.
Are you able to report on the size of the recycle bin?
Dany Lavertu commented
Can the reports include the recycle bin please?
Ability to view site collection recycle bins and site level recycle bins with more detail then OOB SharePoint (2013 on prem) provides.
