add feature to use filters and do search in the recycle bin

When recycle bin get large, it is difficult to find item. Having the ability to use filters or doing a search in the recycle bin would facilitate our task.

    We have an EDRMS solution with about 1TB of data in one site collection. The recycle bin is practically un-usable. Since the move function now also places a copy of anything moved in the recycle bin we find it very difficult to restore anything over a few days old. Need to be able to filter by subsite at a minimum. We shouldn't have to be using PowerShell queries to restore 10's of files from 2 weeks ago. Should be an end user task.

    I really don't know why this isn't a part of the core functionality. Our recycle bin is huge and it is practically impossible to find a specific file that was deleted.

    I also like the idea of having a preview to SEE what the document / was or is to verify "oh ya, that's the right document"
