    "Ghost" nodes in recucle bin


    (Umbraco v4.6.1 on MSSQL2008)

    After having deleted a large amount of nodes from the content tree I wanted to empty the recyclebin. It ran fine for a while but then stopped at around 500 nodes remaining. I waited for a few minutes before closing the "empty recycle bin" modal. (It says not to :))

    After that all the nodes in the recycle bin had been "flattened" (the node structure is gone and all the remaining nodes are children of the recycle bin) and they are greyed out.

    I can delete them one at a time, but the "empty recycle bin" feature is still stuck at 500 node remaining.

    What can I do to get the recycle bin emptied. I dont wanna go through the process of manually deleting 500 nodes one at a time.

    I was looking through the DB in an attempt to try to do it there, but got stopped by primary/foreign key relations. I could properly do it the hard way by folowing the relations down through the DB.

    But I would like to know if there is another way to get this fixed.
