 Specify a time, in hours, for undeletion to be available in the Undelete Expire Time field; click check mark to save. For example, enter 2 if you want to allow a 2 hour retrieval period for documents you have deleted before they are permanently deleted.
 Choose Create - View; select "Shared, contains deleted documents" from the "View Type" box.
