Windows Server 2008 R2 reached RTM. Among the many cool new features provided with that release, Microsoft has now added a recycle bin feature to Active Directory. The management interface provided by Microsoft for this feature is the command line, or more specifically, PowerShell. That’s great if you’re like me and you love to manage your infrastructure using PowerShell, but what if you prefer a GUI? Fortunately there is a solution for you too.
PowerGUI 184.108.40.2060 or later
PowerShell 2.0 or later
Microsoft Active Directory module 1.0 or later

• Permanently delete objects in the recycle bin (recursively or not)
