How To Recover Deleted Folder From MS Office Outlook 2003

Hi:

I inadvertently deleted a sub folder which had previously been created to
Inbox. I was in the process of creating the same folder name and put it
under Personal Folders instead of Inbox when I deleted both the new folder
and old sub folder,

How can I recover the deleted old sub folder to Inbox? The more specifics
the better.

Thanks so much!

Open Deleted Items, locate the deleted folder, click and drag it back to
Inbox.

Re: How To Recover Deleted Folder From MS Office Outlook 2003

The Inbox sub folder that was deleted was not in the Deleted Items folder,
as that is of course the first place that I looked. I wish that it were so
simple.

Afterwards I purposely deleted other named folders and none appeared in
the Deleted Items folder when deleted. The ones that I purposely deleted
asked if I wanted to delete them etc. The other sub folder that I
inadvertently deleted never did ask for deletion confirmation. None ever
appeared in the Deleted Items folder after deletion.

Thanks

Re: How To Recover Deleted Folder From MS Office Outlook 2003

Does your Deleted Items folder have a + sign beside it? Click on it to expand
it. Folders don't go into the Deleted Items folder, they become subfolders of
the Deleted Items folder. If you haven't emptied your Deleted Items folder
then they should still be there.

If you connect to an Exchange server and your Exchange Admin has enabled DIR
(Deleted Item Retention), you can recover the items depending on how long DIR
is set for. I think the default is 7 days, if I remember correctly. Open your
Deleted Items folder. Click on Tools > Recover Deleted Items. A list of
everything you've deleted that has not been removed from the server will be
there.

If you use a PST, then read the following:

Good luck!

Re: How To Recover Deleted Folder From MS Office Outlook 2003

Hi Kathleen:

You are the gal! Couldn't see the forest for the trees....

BTW I tried the following procedures that I found online for MS Outlook
2003 and followed the Registry procedures exactly, but never could get the
"Recover Deleted Items" to appear under the Tools Menu.My understanding is
that MS Outlook 2007 has this feature built in to it.
***********************
If you accidentally deleted items like Emails, contacts, calendar, tasks,
etc from your mailbox using Outlook, you can recover them as they are first
transferred to the Deleted Items folder of that mailbox. But even if you
delete them from the Deleted Items folder you can still recover them. This
feature is enabled by default in Outlook 2007 but if you are using 2003 then
you'll have to modify your system registry.
Enabling recovery of deleted items in Outlook 2003:
1. Start Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe).
2. Locate and click the following key in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Exchange\Cli ent\Options
3. On the Edit menu, click Add Value, and then add the following registry
value:
Value name: DumpsterAlwaysOn
Data type: DWORD
Value data: 1
4. Close the Registry Editor.
Now when you start Microsoft Outlook 2003 you'll be able to see a new
option- Recover Deleted Items in the tools menu.


Recovering deleted items in Outlook 2007:
1. In the folder from where you deleted the item, or in the Deleted Items
folder, click 2. Recover Deleted Items on the Tools menu.
Click an item and then click Recover Selected Items
NOTE: If an item doesn't appear in the Recover Deleted Items dialog box then
you can't recover it.

************************
Do you have any idea as to why I couldn't get ":Recover Deleted Items to
appear in the Tools Menu?

Thanks for your great reply!

ColTom2

Re: How To Recover Deleted Folder From MS Office Outlook 2003

This option is only available if you are connecting to a Microsoft Exchange
Server mailbox. Otherwise, this feature is not available for POP3 or IMAP
accounts.
