We have had a recycle bin for Windows Files, Mail and many other objects which people delete on their computer for a few years, but for the ITPRO, we have never had the ability to recycle Active Directory Objects.

Imagine the situation where you are the AD admin for the day, and by mistake you remove an entire OU which contains all head quarters employees, including the CEO… Houston we have a problem…

Well in the past this would be a real issue to resolve, but with Windows Server 2008 R2, this is a new key feature which we solve this.

Joey in the team talks about this feature and shows how you can rollback changes that you have made incorrectly.
