This is a [[:Category:Contributed_code|contributed (third party)]] plugin for Moodle written by Skylar Kelty and shared on Moodle.org
This plugin adds a "recycle bin" for course modules to Moodle. The recycle bin stores course modules when they're deleted and provides an interface for users to restore them should they need to. It can be configured to automatically purge items after a configurable length of time.
==Moodle versions available==
This plugin works with Moodle 2.8 and 2.9
==Translations available==
This plugin has been [https://lang.moodle.org/ translated] to the following languages (as of August 26th 2015):
* es_mx Mexican Spanish
It requires a core hack as there is no pre-cm-deleted event, you will need to add a line to '/course/lib.php' (function course_delete_module), right after the first "if()".
=== Automatic Patching ===
Simply apply this diff using `patch`:
<code diff>
diff --git a/course/lib.php b/course/lib.php
index e49bdf1..5f8d6e6 100644
--- a/course/lib.php
+++ b/course/lib.php

+    \local_recyclebin\Observer::pre_cm_delete($cm);
    // Get the module context.
    $modcontext = context_module::instance($cm->id);
=== Manual Patching ===
* First, open /course/lib.php in a text editor.
* You need to find these lines within the course_delete_module function:
<code php>
// Get the course module.
if (!$cm = $DB->get_record('course_modules', array('id' => $cmid))) {
    return true;
* After those two lines, add the following:
<code php>
// Notify the recycle bin plugin.
Your modified file must look exactly like this (around lines 1658 and 1659):
* You will then have a Recycle bin available inside the Administration block:

==Potential privacy issues==
This plugin will store a backup of user data in Moodle's dataroot.
