Get-SPDeletedSite [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-ContentDatabase <SPContentDatabasePipeBind>] [-DateTimeFrom <String>] [-DateTimeTo <String>] [-Limit <String>] [-SiteSubscription <SPSiteSubscriptionPipeBind>] [-WebApplication <SPWebApplicationPipeBind>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]
Get-SPDeletedSite [-Identity] <SPDeletedSitePipeBind> [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-ContentDatabase <SPContentDatabasePipeBind>] [-DateTimeFrom <String>] [-DateTimeTo <String>] [-Limit <String>] [-SiteSubscription <SPSiteSubscriptionPipeBind>] [-WebApplication <SPWebApplicationPipeBind>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

This cmdlet contains more than one parameter set. You may only use parameters from one parameter set, and you may not combine parameters from different parameter sets. For more information about how to use parameter sets, see Cmdlet Parameter Sets.

This cmdlet was introduced in Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 with Service Pack 1 (SP1) and Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010 with Service Pack 1 (SP1).

Use the Get-SPDeletedSite cmdlet to display a list of deleted site collections by using the Identity parameter. If no parameter is specified, then all deleted site collections in the farm are displayed.

Unlike the Get-SPSite cmdlet that uses the host name and scheme for the Identity parameter (that is, http://server_name), the value of the identity parameter for all SPDeletedSite cmdlets use a server-relative URL. Typically, the forward slash character (/) begins the relative URL and also denotes the root site.

For additional information about a server-relative URL or understanding general concepts about absolute and relative URLs, see Server-relative URL Property or Understanding Absolute and Relative URL Addresses.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPDeletedSitePipeBind

Specifies the URL or GUID of the site collection to get.

The identity can be either a valid server-relative URL in the form /sites/site_name or a valid GUID, for example, 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh.

AssignmentCollection

Optional

Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPAssignmentCollection

Manages objects for the purpose of proper disposal. Use of objects, such as SPWeb or SPSite, can use large amounts of memory and use of these objects in Windows PowerShell scripts requires proper memory management. Using the SPAssignment object, you can assign objects to a variable and dispose of the objects after they are needed to free up memory. When SPWeb, SPSite, or SPSiteAdministration objects are used, the objects are automatically disposed of if an assignment collection or the Global parameter is not used.

noteNote
When the Global parameter is used, all objects are contained in the global store. If objects are not immediately used, or disposed of by using the Stop-SPAssignment command, an out-of-memory scenario can occur.

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Prompts you for confirmation before executing the command. For more information, type the following command: get-help about_commonparameters

ContentDatabase

Optional

Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPContentDatabasePipeBind

Specifies the GUID of the content database from which to list site collections.

DateTimeTo

Optional

System.String

The type must be a valid DateTime format that is culture-specific to the administrative language, such as 2/16/2007 12:15:12 for English-US.

Limit

Optional

System.String

Limits the maximum number of site collections to return. The default value is 1000.

The type must be a valid non-negative number. Specify ALL to return all site collections for the given scope.

SiteSubscription

WebApplication
