the code to delete old version is found in the link below. i have a siite and a subsite only. but when i do this code, it only does one location in the subsite and that's it. it doesn't go to any other places. any idea? thanks

Get-SPWebApplication | Get-SPSite -Limit All | Get-SPWeb -Limit All | ForEach-Object { ForEach($list in $_.Lists) { If($list.EnableVersioning -eq $true) { $list.MajorVersionLimit = 1; $list.Update(); ForEach($item in $list.Items) { $item.URL; $item.SystemUpdate() } } } }

You are saying only one list is affected?  How many lists do you have?  Is versioning enabled on all of them?

I'm not following.  What does the recycle bin have to do with anything?

This script only affects lists that have Versioning enabled.  Do you have more than one list with Versioning enabled?

If it stores in recycle bin wouldn't that store in the db?

Yes but the script isn't going to loop through the recycle bin. Why would you want to?

I assume you have verified that versioning is in fact enabled on all the lists?  Because your script isn't going to touch it unless its enabled.
