Retrieve a File or Folder from the Recycle Bin

 Coming Soon

The Documents tool is being redesigned with a new look. Please refer to this article for details on the changes: Documents: Visual Redesign of the Documents Tool.


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

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Admin' permissions on the project's Documents tool
      Note: A user with 'Standard' or 'Read-only' permissions to the Documents tool can view the contents of the Recycle Bin if the 'See Recycle Bin' granular permission is enabled on the permission template associated with the user.  See Grant Granular Permissions in a Permission Template.
  • Additional Information:
    • Keep the following in mind when working with the 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 file tree, navigate to the Recycle Bin and click + to reveal the contents.
  3. Use a drag-and-drop operation to move the file or folder out of the Recycle Bin and into the desired location.
