XRMTool Box Please help! Need to use Recycle Bin option

    Today my IT guy noticed a ton of deleted items under my name- as random things keep disappearing (fields, accounts etc.). I know for a fact I never manually or bulk deleted anything the way it is reflecting I have in CRM. He said I could use the recycle bin option in XRMTool  Box to recover all the deleted accounts if they indeed shouldn't have been removed.

    We are wondering if a workflow caused this somehow or what, because on a few it shows my name as deleting an account but really it was the sales rep (verified this) yet it showed me as the culprit.

    I do not know how to use XRMTool Box yet. Can anyone please assist with how to open this recycle bin option and use it to add these accounts back to our system?

    thank you!!

    Hi Heather,
    You can follow the below steps and restore the deleted accounts.
    1. Before going to the xrm tool go to the Settings -> Administration -> System Settings
        In the Auditing section select Start Auditing, Common Entities.
    2. Download XrmToolBox (https://www.xrmtoolbox.com/)
    3. Install the Recycle Bin plugin.
    4. Connect your D365 Organisation.
    5. Open Recycle Bin plugin and click 'Load Entities and Users'.
    6. Choose the entity, user, Date Range and click on 'Show Deleted Records'.
    7. Now you can see the deleted records list select the record which you want to restore and click restore.
