Retrieve a File or Folder from the Recycle Bin


To retrieve a file or folder from the Documents tool's Recycle Bin.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • To retrieve a file or folder from the Recycle Bin, 'Admin' on the project's Documents tool.
    • To view the contents of the Recycle Bin as a user with 'Standard' or 'Read-only' level permission on the project's Documents tool, the 'See Recycle Bin' granular permission must be enabled on the permission template associated with your user account on the project. See Grant Granular Permissions in a Permission Template.
  • Additional Information:
    • Keep the following in mind when working with the Company level or Project level Documents tool:

      • The tasks that you can perform are determined by the permission level that you've been granted for each tool. See What are the default permission levels in Procore? You may not always be assigned the same permission level on both your company's and a project's Documents tool. 
      • Access permissions are typically set by your company's Procore Administrator (or another contact at your organization who has been delegated the authority to administer a specific project and/or project tool).
    • Any deleted files or folders will be added to the Recycle Bin. Files cannot be deleted from the Recycle Bin. 


  1. Navigate to the company's or project's Documents tool.
  2. In the right hand file tree, click the + button next to Recycle Bin.
  3. Drag-and-drop the file or folder you wish to retrieve into the folder you would like to place the deleted file or folder. (Note: The retrieved file or folder will now appear in the Documents file tree on the left.)
