OneDrive for Business restore full recycle bin functionality
At the moment one could restore only up to 200 items at once and it is real pain to restore ODfB fully if user has deleted all files and folders for example. And there is no PowerShell cmdlet to restore OneDrive files too, at the moment one can use PowerShell only to restore SharePoint Online sites from recycler.

On top of having thousands of documents in the recycle bin that need to be restored, it would seem that the user has already loaded about 5% of the documents back into the computer, so when they select 200 documents to restore from the recycle bin, it complains about the files that already exist and will not restore the rest of the files until you remove the files that exist from the selection. This slows the process down even more.

One idea that would probably have helped all the others in this request is a button/option that said "Restore all that was deleted in the last hour" or "day". That would make accidental deletions easy so fix regardless of the number and size of the deleted items.

Please add to Recycle bin functionality. Had to restore 30k files, took a long time
Since PowerShell restore recycle bin is not an option; a restore all files in Recycle bin should be an option

Need to have unlimited file restore capability. I have 10 thousand plus files and have to spend a lot of time at 200 each time. HELP Microsoft Team OneDrive!!

We need this capability. One user needed to free up space on their drive and deleted projects that were not theirs thinking it would only delete from their drive.
You can highlight 200 files to restore at one time but it times out after about 30 files...
I have to restore 10000+ files.....
I totally support the need for a restore all, or restore all deleted on a specific date.
... also - if there is some bug in the sync (which there is) then you can go round in an infinite loop of delete on one machine which appears in a trash bin on another machine (on a mac) which if it is cleared then appears in another recycle bin (on a PC).
I am another one who thinks this is a broken rust-bucket sorry-excuse of a program.

The Recycle Bin in OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online need desperate overhaul. I routinely have departing employees delete all their files in OneDrive on their laptop, which then syncs each deleted item to the recycle bin in the cloud (rather than deleting at the folder level). Please fix this broken down rust-bucket sorry-excuse of a recycle bin.
Goddammit please add this. I have a user who deleted 20000 files today and I can't bulk restore or even search the recycle bin for particular critical files!!!!
can we get a restore all button . since we have to restore only 200 items at present . which is painful since user has by mistake deleted entire folder which has over 50000 files. hence a restore all functionality would be really helpful
With the ability to sort for specific files as well
