      Description

      Overview
      If you delete an activity or resource in error there is no way for a course editor to undo / recover the item. Currently the only way to recover items is from either course or database backups. Even then restoring grades back into a live course from a restored (outdated) copy is not always possible.

      Specification

      • User clicks "delete" on an activity or resource
      • Moodle uses the activity/resource backup feature to do a backup of the activity, and store it on the moodle file server
      • This tool then via an administrative interface allows the user to manage the list of recycled items.
      • The user can restore something from the recycle bin, or delete it permanently.
      • There are administrative settings to change for example the amount of time that files are stored on the server before they are automatically deleted.
