Had an issue at a client where a SharePoint task list got corrupted.
The issue had come about due to the list being copied using Metalogix SharePoint Migration Manager within the same site. The copy of the list had been corrupted so that if you clicked on “View All Site Content”, then clicked on the list name you were taken to the Edit List Settings page (/_layouts/listaspx.aspx?List=[GuidOfList]). Once in the list settings page, clicking on the breadcrumb to take you back to the list would take you to the web application homepage.
The fix was actually quite straightforward, if you typed in the url of the list correctly, http://sharepointsiteurl/sites/site/lists/My%20List%20Name, you could access the default list view with no problem. So I used a similar method to fix that I have used in this blog post, Manage Content and Structure error.
- Delete the list using List Settings->Delete this list.
- Restore the list from the recycle bin
Voila! The link within “View All Site content” is now working as expected.
